File Extension FILE
Information about FILE files and how to open them
Generic file extension that may be appended to a Windows file that does not have an extension; since the file has a generic extension, it is an unknown file type and no associated program will automatically open it. You may try opening a ".file" file by dragging it to applications that you think may open it. If the file is formatted as a text file, you can at least view the contents of the file by opening it in a text editor.
