Opening PCF files

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

What is a PCF file?

PCF stands for packaged collaboration files. These files allow users to share documents while preventing any user from working within a document that does not contain the latest file updates.

The PCF file extension also allows for multiple documents to be combined into a single file for project collaboration. The PCF file allows the files within the file to be accessed using the Insight Connect interface or via email. The files can then be viewed and edited, allowing all users to see the changes during the collaboration process.

The .pcf file extension is also used for PaintCAD computer aided drawing application. The PCF files used by this program store font images for the fonts that are used within the application.

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.
