.gzip File Extension

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

what is a .gzip file?

A GNU zipped file is integrated with compression specifications and standards implemented by the GNU ZIP algorithm, and these GNU zipped files are stored in the GZIP format and are affixed with the .gzip extension. These .gzip files may contain one or more files selected by the user for compression using the GNU ZIP algorithm. The resulting GZIP file will be in a smaller size than the actual size of the uncompressed versions of the files stored in the GZIP file. The GNU ZIP algorithm is an open source compression technology, and support for these GZIP compression standards and specifications are mostly integrated in Unix-based systems. There are many Microsoft Windows file compression and decompression tools with support for these GZIP files, which means these programs can be used to create or decompress and access the content stored in these GZIP files. There are also file compression and decompression programs developed for Mac platforms that can be used to decompress these GZIP files. The Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe 2011 is integrated with support for compressing files in the GZIP format as well as for decompressing GZIP files.

how to open a .gzip file?

Launch a .gzip 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 .gzip 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 .gzip files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .gzip file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .gzip 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, .gzip. 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.
