    To go a little more in depth windows computers use more then just .exe file extensions. There are 1000's of windows file extensions out there.

    Here is a list of some of the file extensions you will see there are many many more

    A file with an .apk extension should be an Android application package file. It's a zip/jar packed binary file with the MIME type "application/vnd.android.package-archive". An Android device should know how to handle it.
