How to open ODF files

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

What is an ODF file?

ODF files are OpenDocument Formula files, which you can read more about below.

The ODF file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an ODF opener may not be able to open all kinds of ODF files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
