Notes about the BRN file extension:
To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened
" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?
" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps"
and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.
The BRN file type is primarily associated with 'BrainStorm' by Brainstorm Software Ltd. BrainStorm lets you capture textual information from any source: your own knowledge and ideas; information on the web; or information from any program. It then helps you organize your collected thoughts, ideas and jottings into a logical structure and, if you wish, Web-publish your work to enable others to navigate your ideas exactly as you envisaged them. Multiple users of Brainstorm can collaborate. The program/file format originated on CP/M around 1982, migrated to DOS, and is now being used under Windows. The current program can read all older files though the format has changed since CP/M.
