Opening PATCH files

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

What is a PATCH file?

Files that contain the .patch file extension are used by a variety of different software applications for program patches and software update purposes.

A software company will create and distribute a patch file that contains the data that is needed to update an application or fix a problem with the associated software program. Patch files may be used to fix software bugs, improve program usability, replace graphics or update software features.

These files ensure that a user is operating the most recent version of a software application and that bugs and errors have been addressed in the software they are running.
