Dynamic link library files commonly or technically termed as DLL files are the files which contain various functions and other information accessed by a windows program during booting and during various ALU operations. Windows cannot operate on any information without these files. DLL files are stored with an extension of .dll in the computer memory. When a particular program is created corresponding dll links also is created. Any such file can be created in two modes one is static and the other one is dynamic dll. A static dll is the one which runs as long as the program is active while a dynamic dll file is the one which gets activated as and when the programs needs that link. A dynamic file is much more popular and mostly in use in these days over a static one.
The dynamic files use the memory, hard drive space more efficiently than a static file. Generally, these are automatically loaded on to the computer memory as and when the windows operating system gets installed. However, any new programs are installed later these will be installed automatically. You do not have to open a file while executing a program as these will get activated automatically as and when you start using a program.
Every program installed in a computer has a corresponding file, however, the certain set of programs use a single file. The extensions vary sometimes but the work with any extension remains same. Sometimes either accidentally or incidentally these files will be deleted. If any of these files gets deleted you cannot perform certain operations or sometimes you cannot even operate your computer.
