Opening TARGETS files

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

What is a TARGETS file?

Files with the .target extension usually contain development files that are included with the MSBuild platform for Microsoft Visual Studio. These files contain properties, tasks, items and targets for popular programming scenarios. These common programming scenarios can be imported to Visual Studio projects by importing the .targets file to the Visual Studio project.

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.
