Opening WTF files

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

What is a WTF file?

Files that contain the .wtf file extension are most commonly associated with the World of Warcraft computer gaming application. These files are used to store the settings that are used by the game during a user's gameplay, such as the configuration, audio and display settings.

When a World of Warcraft (also known as WoW) player modifies the settings for his or her particular WoW interface, the WTF files that are used by the software application will also change. In some cases, the settings of the World of Warcraft game can be modified and customized by editing the WTF files themselves.

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.
