Opening TTF files

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

What is a TTF file?

Files that contain the .ttf file extension are most commonly associated with font files. The TTF file format was created by Apple for use on both Macintosh and Windows computers.

The TTF font files that are used by the Mac and Windows computers are able to be re-sized without any loss of font quality. These type-face fonts appear the same way on a user’s computer screen as they do when the words are printed on paper.

The .ttf file extension is also used by the Optigraphics software application. These .ttf files contain image files that are used by the 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.
