Opening GID files
Did your computer fail to open a GID file? We explain what GID files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your GID files.
What is a GID file?
Files with the .gid file extension contain hidden Windows 95 help files. The Windows 95 operating system uses these files for its integrated help system. When you open a help file in the Windows 95 operating system to get assistance with a Windows-based task, Windows analyzes the file and creates a hidden GID file that speeds up access to the various Windows help topics.
Each time you open a help file within the Windows operating system, a new GID file is created on your hard drive. Updated GID files are then created when Windows detects that an outdated help file exists on your computer.
Software that will open, convert or fix GID 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.
