Opening NEW files

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

What is a NEW file?

The .new file extension is associated with two different types of computer files. In some cases plain text documents will be stored with the .new file extension.

The .new file extension is also used for files containing new information about an application or program.

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.
