Opening CHT files

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

What is a CHT file?

Files that contain the .cht file extension are usually associated with files that contain cheat codes for a variety of games created for the Super Nintendo gaming platform.

The cheat codes that are stored in a CHT file are often used by SNES game emulators to enable "cheats" for Nintendo games that are played on a computer rather than on the actual SNES gaming console. These CHT files are intended to make it easier for a user to play the associated Super Nintendo game.

The dBase software application has also been known to use the .cht file suffix. These CHT files contain interface files that are used by the dBase software program.

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.
