How to open ESM files

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

What is an ESM file?

ESM files are Enhanced Simplex bitmap files, which you can read more about below.

The ESM 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 ESM opener may not be able to open all kinds of ESM files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
