What are PNF files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a PNF file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your PNF files.

What is a PNF file?

A .PNF file is a Windows Pre-compiled INF file.

Files that contain the .pnf file extension are created by Windows when an INF file is run on a user's computer.

INF files are used to install device drivers on Windows PCs and associated PNF files are a pre-processed copy of the INF file that allows for faster execution the next time the INF file is run.

You usually do not need to edit or view these files, as they only contain information usable by the software program that uses them.
