How to open PAM files

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

What is a PAM file?

PAM files are Portable Arbitrary Map bitmap files, which you can read more about below.

The PAM 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 a PAM opener may not be able to open all kinds of PAM files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.

These apps are known to open certain types of PAM files. Remember, different programs may use PAM files for different purposes, so you may need to try out a few of them to be able to open your specific file.
