Opening GG files

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

What is a GG file?

The GG file format is used by the Google Desktop application. Files that contain the .gg file extension are used by Google Desktop application or "gadget" developers to distribute script-based sidebar gadgets, similar to widgets but solely used for the Google application.

The gadgets contained in the GG files can provide Google Desktop users with streaming information on news, finance and sports and well as interactive game utilities and custom search boxes. These "gadgets" are installed right onto the user's Google desktop or browser. Popular sidebar gadgets that use the .gg file extension include calculators, currency converters, news tickers and blog updates.
