What is a JPEG file?

I have a JPEG file on the computer and I am not sure what type of file it is?

JPEG stands for 'Joint Photographic Experts Group'. A .jpeg or .jpg file is an image file which contains a compressed version of the original image (usually a raw or bitmap file). The compressed image occupies less disk space whilst sacrificing a small amount of image quality.
