Opening STR files

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

What is a STR file?

Files that contain the .str file extension are normally associated with a broad range of different software applications and is used for a variety of file formats.

Some of the most popular uses of the .str file extension include custom screen savers for the Windows operating system. Users can create screen savers to customize the way the screen saver on their monitor looks when the system goes into hibernation. The files that hold the settings for these screen savers contain the .str file suffix.

The DataPerfect software program also contains the .str file extension. These STR files contain structured database files that are used by the software program.

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.
