Here are 3 free file viewer software for Windows 10.
If your need is to have a single tool or software which is capable of opening most of the common or popular format files on your Windows 10 PC, then you should try any of these free file viewer software for Windows 10. Whether you have to open DOCX, XLSX, CSV, MP3, AVI, FLV, ePub, JPG, PDF, PNG, WMV, WAV, AC3, or any other popular format file, these software are perfect.
Most of these file viewers support 100+ file formats. Each software has unique feature(s) too. For example, you can open and edit a file, get detailed file information, view HEX code of file, etc.
Let’s start with the first free file viewer for Windows 10 available here.
Open Freely is a powerful file opener software for Windows 10. It comes with support for over 350 file types, which is a huge number. You can open MS Office, Adobe PDF, Images, Audio/Video, and many other types of files using this single application. You can also associate any of the supported extensions to open with this software.
There are a couple of interesting options also available that you can use on its interface. The software takes a few seconds (sometimes around just 1 second) to open the file selected by you and then it provides options as per the file opened by you. For example, if you have opened a Word or TXT file, then its interface will turn into a document editor with all the necessary tools to help you edit the file and save it. And if you have opened an image, its interface will look like an image editor.
This is really a very good option to open most of the common file types. You can surely try it.
Here is the full review.
File Viewer Lite is another useful software in this list. It supports over 120 format files. So, all the common files like TXT, DOC, DOCX, BMP, PNG, DNG, CR2, AVI, MP3, etc., files can be viewed easily. It also lets you edit the document, but this lite version doesn’t provide the feature to save the changes. Still, the software is good from the perspective of file viewing.
The software can also show detailed information regarding the added file, which is a good feature. It can show File Type, associated software to open that file, creation, modified, last accessed dates, the file is read only or not, system file or not, and many other things. It is a good competitor to other free file viewer software for Windows 10.
Universal Viewer is also a very good file viewer software for Windows 10. However, it can’t help you open and play some very common and popular audio and video files (MP3, MP4, etc.). But, the software is good to view eBooks (ePub, PDF, CBR, CBZ, etc.), in addition to documents and common image formats. It has a simple interface and provides basic options for the opened file. You can zoom out/in, move to next or previous file, find text, etc.
The software is portable which simply means it won’t create any keys or changes in the Registry Editor. If you have to use file viewer that can display many images, eBooks, documents, this portable file viewer would be good enough.

If I say that Open Freely is the best software in this entire list, then it won’t be wrong. It is so because it supports 350+ file types. Other software give this software a good competition, but the best one for me is Open Freely software.
