Notes about the TIFF file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The TIFF file type is primarily associated with 'Tagged Image Format File'. Also most fax files. Often you can view these files in the Windows Picture and fax viewer in Windows XP. You can also import the file into Word or other files as an image and view it there. If you cannot delete TIF files in Windows XP, even if not in use, you may have a defective version of the Microsoft RAW viewer. Modify the viewer options or uninstall it per the Microsoft page instructions.
