Notes about the RSS 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 RSS file type is primarily associated with 'RSS File'. Rich Site Summary (RSS) is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing headlines and other Web content. More commonly, RSS now means Really Simple Syndication. This changed with version 2 of the standard.
