Opening PTF files

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

What is a PTF file?

Files that contain the .ptf file extension are used by a variety of computer software applications. Some files with the .ptf extension are used by the LiveNote disposition management software to store legal transcript files.

The Sony PSP also uses the .ptf file extension for "theme" files that are used by the gaming device. These files allow a user to install custom "themes" onto the PSP device. These themes alter the look and feel of the PSP interface.

The .ptf file extension is also used by the Pro Tools audio recording software. This software uses PTF files to store project settings for projects that are being worked on in the software 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.
