Opening CSB files

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

What is a CSB file?

The .csb file type is mostly found in files that are source/ script/ data files used in running other files critical to Corel Photo- Paint application.

Corel Photo- Paint is a raster graphics editor that can open and convert vector formats from CorelDraw and Adobe Illustrator and can open other formats, including PNG, JPG and GIF files — as well as competing photo editor formats from Photoshop, GIMP and Paint Shop Pro. The program also supports plug-in functionality, including those developed for Adobe Photoshop [4] and Paint Shop Pro.

CSB file is a Corel Binary Script. Corel Script is a utility which allows Corel software to run the macro-like programs written in the Corel Script language. Without the .csb script, Corel applications, especially, Corel Photo- Paint will not work as intended.

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.
