Opening ABS files

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

What is an ABS file?

Files that contain the .abs file extension are most commonly associated with MPEG audio sound files. These MPEG files contain the audio-visual data for movie, music and video files in a compressed file format and are saved with the .abs file extension. These ABS files are audio files that follow the MPEG coding standards.

The GNU C Compiler ELF/DWARF files also use the .abs file suffix. These files contain absolute files that are used by the compiler.

The Avant Web browser also uses the .abs file extension. These ABS files contain skin files that allow a user to customize the look and feel of the Avant browser interface.

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.
