Opening PLSK files

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

What is a PLSK file?

Files that contain the .plsk file extension are normally used by the Windows Live Messenger application.

Windows Live Messenger is an instant messaging software application that enables users to chat online in "real time" with their Windows Live contacts. The PLSK files that are used by this program contain custom "skins" that can be used with the Windows Live Messenger program. These "skins" allow a user to change the look and feel of the application's interface.

In order to use PLSK file skins with the Windows Live Messenger program, a user must have the Messenger Plus! add-on installed on the Windows Live Messenger application.

Software that will open, convert or fix PLSK files

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.
