What are CFG files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a CFG file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a CFG file?

CFG files have multiple uses, and Configuration is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.

Configuration File

Configuration files are used by a wide range of programs and applications. The information within some CFG files contains a program's initial configuration and settings.

Some files with the .cfg file extension are also created when you change the settings of a particular program or computer application. For example, if you change the interface settings of a specific application, the application will create a new CFG file to accommodate those settings.

Files with the .cfg file extension are usually written in plain text, although others may be stored in a different format depending on the application they were created with.
