Take a Look

Several tricks exist that can help you take a look–if not completely open and alter–files with mystery or odd extensions. Make sure the computer has a solid image viewer, then set it up under “options” or “preferences” to deal with all image files. If you don’t have one, technofileonline.com recommends you consider installing Irfan View, available from www.irfanview.com.

Hint: do not click the “Always open with” checkbox as it will possibly hinder any future searches.
