There could be multiple reasons for this, depending on the context and specific scenario. Here are some possibilities:

  1. The code is specifically written to only trigger for certain file extensions, and doesn't have the necessary conditional statements to handle other extensions. In this case, you would need to modify the code to include support for the desired extension.

  2. The program or application that is associated with the selected file extension may not have the necessary APIs or hooks to allow the code to interact with it. For example, if you have a script that's designed to modify the metadata of image files, but you select a PDF file, the code may not be able to access the PDF's metadata due to limitations of the PDF viewer or editor.

  3. There could be a bug or error in the code that's preventing it from executing correctly. This could be due to syntax errors, logic errors, or other issues that need to be debugged and resolved.

  4. The file extension may be mapped to a different program or application than what the code is expecting. For example, if you have a script that's designed to open text files in a specific text editor, but the file extension is associated with a different editor, the code may not work as intended. In this case, you may need to update the file associations on your system or modify the code to handle the different programs.

Overall, the reason for the code not triggering for a different file extension will depend on the specifics of the code, the system configuration, and the user's actions. Troubleshooting and testing will be necessary to identify and resolve the issue.
