How to open ECL files

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

What is an ECL file?

ECL files are Eclipse text files, which you can read more about below.

The ECL file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an ECL opener may not be able to open all kinds of ECL files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
