How to open Q files

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

What is a Q file?

Q files are Quantum compressed archive files, which you can read more about below.

The Q file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a Q opener may not be able to open all kinds of Q files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
