Opening SKN files

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

What is a SKN file?

Files that contain the .skn file extension are most commonly associated with the Symbian OS operating system. The Symbian OS operating system is most commonly used by a variety of Nokia cellular phones and mobile devices.

The SKN files that are used by the Symbian OS contain custom skins that can be applied to the Symbian OS user interface. These settings can include settings for the appearance of the interface's buttons, icons, labels and background image.

The SKN files allow a user to change the look and feel of their Nokia device's interface, enhancing use and creating a more personalized experience.

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.
