Opening CUE files

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

What is a CUE file?

The .cue file extension is most commonly given to text files that contain information about compact discs and super-audio CDs. These files define how the tracks on the disc are organized. They also store information about the contents of the associated CD.

The information contained in a CUE file may include details about the CD such as the length of each audio track, the name of the song and the name of the performer.

In some cases the .cue extension is also given to Microsoft Cue Card files. These files contain cue cards that a user has created within the Microsoft application.

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.
