How to open SKC files

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

What is a SKC file?

SKC files are ISIS sketch files, which you can read more about below.

The SKC 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 SKC opener may not be able to open all kinds of SKC files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
