Opening RC files

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

What is a RC file?

Files with the .rc extension contain resource script files used by a number of different software compiling applications. These files contain instructions on how a program should compile the associated application source files.

The .rc file extension is also used for Emacs configuration record files, Mozilla (Netscape) subscription information files and Left 4 Dead 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.
