Sometimes we receive e-mails with attachments in formats that are not very common and thus it may happen that we don't have the corresponding program to open those files. Free Opener helps us to solve this problem. It can open files in more than 80 different formats, including all of the MS Office suite, as well as PDF and TXT, but also many other, lesser known formats such as BAT, DNG, ERF and many more. And as if this was not enough, the program allows making some basic edition in selected formats. For example, if you open a Word file with it, you can copy/paste, zoom in/out, and find any word or phrase. This adds versatility to the application.

In sum, if you receive files with many different formats and don't want to spend a fortune purchasing all the programs to open them, then this application will help you to save time and money, allowing you to decide which programs to purchase.

The program is free, but the installation wizard asks you to install extra software, such as the Ask toolbar and Smart PC Cleaner. Nevertheless, you can decline to install these additional programs.
