Opening ING files

Did your computer fail to open an ING file? We explain what ING files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your ING files.

What is an ING file?

The files that contain the .ing file extension are files that have been created by the MasterCook software application.

MasterCook is a recipe software product that provides users with more than 5,000 different recipes to choose from. MasterCook also allows users to add their own recipes to their MasterCook recipe book and enter notes into the recipes that have been provided by the software. This provides a virtual, no-mess recipe collection.

The ING files that the MasterCook software uses contain recipe ingredient files for the recipes that have been saved within the MasterCook application. Each ING file contains the ingredients for a different MasterCook recipe.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
