.enc File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Encoded File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .enc. Files with the file extension .enc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .enc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .enc file?

The .enc file extension is used by files in the UUenconded format, which are encrypted files. This also means these ENC files contain protected data and are saved in this format, so unauthorized viewing and copying of data can be prevented. Users of computers that run on widely used Microsoft Windows systems like Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 can unencrypt, open and view the content of these files by installing Corel Win Zip 16 Pro. This is an application that is classified as a file compression and decompression tool, and when these files are decompressed using this program, users must supply the correct unencryption key to gain access to the content of the files. Otherwise, this software will deny the user access to open and view the content of the files.

how to open a .enc file?

Launch a .enc file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .enc file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .enc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .enc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .enc file will open the correct application.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .enc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
