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

what is a .epub file?

The .epub file extension was developed by IDPF and it is mostly used by e-book files. In other words, e-books are saved in this file format. This is the file extension that allows data and information contained in the e-book to be read and distributed by users. It comes in a zip format and this is what makes e-books easily distributed by publishers. This .epub file extension is also known as an open e-book file because it refers to three IDPF standards. These standards are the Open Publication Structure, the Open Packaging Format and the Open Container Format. This is because the content of the e-book is not the only thing that’s saved in .epub file format. The structure of the e-book and everything about the e-book are all in .epub format. The fact that users can read e-books and other digital publications is owing to the .epub file extension. This file extension is also what makes it easy for other devices to access and read e-books; devices such as e-book readers, cell phones, ipads, etc.

how to open a .epub file?

Launch a .epub 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 .epub file will open it.

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, .epub. 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.
