Opening WGT files

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

What is a WGT file?

Files that contain the .wgt file extension are most commonly associated with the Widget files that are used by the Opera Internet browser.

The Widgets that are used by the Opera browser are little applications that can be installed onto the Opera Internet browser for added functionality. Popular Opera Widgets include the Google Translator, eBook readers, to-do lists and calendars.

The Widget files that are saved with the .wgt file suffix are saved as a compressed file archive and contain the widget configuration details, an index document and any associated images. These files also contain the JavaScript files and style sheets needed for the Widget to run properly.

Software that will open, convert or fix WGT files

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.
