Opening SAVE files

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

What is a SAVE file?

Files that contain the .save file extension are most commonly used by a variety of computer applications for the software's saved computer files.

Common uses for the .save file extension include temporary saved files that are created by the Nano Unix text editor, Salt Lake city 2002 game files, game files saved for the Prey video game and game files that have been saved for the Doom 3 video game.

The Unix operating system also uses the .save file suffix for its text editing utility. If the nano text editor runs out of memory it will create a temporary file that is saved with the .save file extension.

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.
