Notes about the FILE 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 FILE file type is primarily associated with 'File With No Extension'. If you are seeing the file type FILE this is not a file extension but an indicator in Windows Explorer that the file has not file extension. FILExt has a FAQ with suggestions on how to handle that type of file.
