How to open APPIMAGE files

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

What is an APPIMAGE file?

APPIMAGE files are AppImage package files, which you can read more about below.

The APPIMAGE file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an APPIMAGE opener may not be able to open all kinds of APPIMAGE files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
