Opening PROFILE files

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

What is a PROFILE file?

The .profile file extension is most commonly used for Bash shell profile files. These files store saved shell profiles that are used by Bash in the Mac OS X environment.

The .profile file extension is also used for the Star Wars Battlefront 2 computer gaming application. These PROFILE files store saved game profiles that a player can use to return to a saved game.

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.
