What is a .DMG file?

DMG files are disk images that contain compressed software installers utilized to distribute and install applications in the Apple macOS operating system. The files replaced IMG files when Mac OS X was released in 2001 and are still commonly used today. macOS users download DMG files from the Internet, then double-click them to begin installing a program. When a DMG file is opened, it mounts a virtual disk on the desktop to install the program.

Typically, Windows users won't encounter DMG files since they are specific to Macs. However, File Viewer Plus can extract the contents of a DMG file, much like a ZIP archive. This feature is especially useful for anyone looking to examine or modify the contents of a DMG file.
