Opening TARGET files

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

What is a TARGET file?

Files that contain the .target file extension usually contain development files that have been included with the MSBuild platform for the Microsoft Visual Studio software application. The Microsoft Visual Studio software is used to develop console and graphical user interface applications. The program offers a complete set of development tools for creating ASP.NET Web applications.

The TARGET files that are used by the Microsoft Visual Studio software contain properties, tasks, items and targets for a variety of popular programming scenarios. These common programming scenarios can then be imported into the Visual Studio projects by importing the .targets file to the Visual Studio project that is in progress.

Software that will open, convert or fix TARGET files

Unfortunately we have not received enough suggestions for software that can open TARGET files yet.

Try a universal file viewer

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.
