Opening MCF files

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

What is a MCF file?

The .mcf file extension is most commonly used by the MasterCook recipe software programs. Versions 2, 3 and 4 of this software use the .mcf file extension. The MCF files are used to store the software's recipes, with each MCF file containing information pertaining to the recipe ingredients and cooking instructions.

The .mcf file extension is also used for Hotsauce graphic files, Mathcad font files, Watchtower Library font files, MCF Media Container files, SignIQ media collection files and TMPGEnc conversion template 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.
