File extension: INK

Notes about the INK 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 INK file type is primarily associated with 'Tablet PC' by Microsoft Corporation. On Tablet PCs, a digitizer overlain on the LCD screen creates an electromagnetic field. When the pen comes in contact with the screen's electromagnetic field, its motion is reflected on the screen as a series of data points. These electromagnetic pen events are then represented visually on the screen as pen strokes. The inking process gives users the choice of converting the handwritten data to standard text through handwriting recognition. Users can also preserve the data in its ink format. Some Pocket PCs also produce this file type. Later versions of Microsoft Word on a PC should be able to open the file.
