File Viewer Plus Support

General FAQs

File Viewer Plus is a file viewer and converter that supports over 300 different types of files, including documents, spreadsheets, images, audio and video, and much more. With this one program, you can view and convert hundreds of file types without installing any other software.

File Viewer Plus also has advanced editing and viewing features. It includes a professional-quality editor for documents and spreadsheets and a file information panel which displays file metadata located inside each file. For advanced users, the file inspector can be used to view any file in a raw text or hexadecimal format.

File Viewer Plus can open over 300 file formats, but it cannot open every file. This is because many software companies create proprietary file formats that can only be viewed with their software. If File Viewer Plus does not recognize a certain file, you can still use the file inspector to see the internal contents of the file. File Viewer Plus also displays helpful information for over 10,000 file types (courtesy of the database).

While the free version of File Viewer Plus opens over 150 file types for no charge, the full version (paid upgrade) unlocks all software features, including the ability to view all 300+ file types and edit and save files. You also get access to the batch converter, which allows you to convert many files at once. To read more, please see the Upgrade page.
