How to open BKI files

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

What is a BKI file?

BKI files are IBM Softcopy Reader (Bookmanager) Bookshelf (and Book) index file files, which you can read more about below.

The BKI 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 a BKI opener may not be able to open all kinds of BKI files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
