Opening CTT files

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

What is a CTT file?

Files that contain the .ctt file extension are used by the Microsoft Windows Live Messenger instant messaging software application. Windows Messenger is a free instant message application that is distributed by the Microsoft Corporation.

The CTT files that are used by the Windows Messenger IM application store a user's contact information in the XML file format. CTT files contain information such as the names and email addresses of a user's list of contacts. These files can be imported by another use to share contact lists and contact information. CTT files can also be helpful if a user loses his or her contact information, providing a backup resource of the user's contact files.

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.
