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

what is a .png file?

PNG files are compressed raster image files usually implemented for visual elements found in a website among other Web graphics. The image content of these .png files consists of index colors integrated by bitmap images, and the lossless digital image compression and encoding specifications that are implemented into these .png files are similar to the compression standards integrated into GIF files. Also known as portable network graphics, the PNG format was developed to lift the limitations of GIF images, in terms of color support and patent licensing. The transparency channel of these PNG files have been improved to implement 8-bit support. CMYK support is not available in these PNG files.

how to open a .png file?

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

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .png files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

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, .png. 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.
