File Extension MCO

.MCO File

File extension: MCO
File type: Wink File

Notes about the MCO 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 MCO file type is primarily associated with 'MSN Messenger' by MSN. Winks, let you send a Flash-like animation to the screen of the person you're chatting with. Select the Wink to send from a Winks toolbar button in the chat window. (Often very annoying.)
