Notes about the MPP 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 MPP file type is primarily associated with 'Microsoft Project' by Microsoft Corporation. With Project you can set up projects, keep project teams aligned, and track and analyze projects. Housatonic and KaDonk have free Project file viewers (registration may be required). OpenProj is a free Project program for multiple platforms and can read MS Project files.
