File Extension SHY

.SHY File

File extension: SHY
File type: Encrypted Binary Data

Notes about the SHY 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 SHY file type is primarily associated with 'ShyFile' by Dr. Bootz GmbH. Files containing encoded binary information require the actual ShyFile software to decode. Any ShyFile installation can be used to decode, regardless whether it's the full version or an expired evaluation copy. The ShyFile software can also encrypt text data and output an .HTA executable which an Internet browser can automatically decode. This file extension was created by ShyFile / Dr. Bootz GmbH.
