How to open XPM files

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

What is a XPM file?

XPM files are X PixMap bitmap files, which you can read more about below.

The XPM file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a XPM opener may not be able to open all kinds of XPM files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
