What are KDF files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening a KDF file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.
What is a KDF file?
The .kdf file extension is most commonly associated with prep files created by the Kinko's File Prep Tool software. This software works like a virtual "printer", saving files that will be printed at a Kinko's location. The file is created when a user selects the FPT option from the drop-down printer menu when printing the document from an application. This does not actually print the document, but creates a printable image.
The .kdf file extension is also used for VisiQuest Standard Data Format files and KARMA MW/Triton data files.
