Free File Viewer lets you open documents, images, videos and many audio formats.
When installing, it offers you to download and install additional programs which are not required by Free File Viewer to function. You can decline this though, if you are careful enough and not click "Accept" by mistake.

The main advantage of this viewer is that it lets you open and view a large number of file formats. You don't need to search and install any special software products in order to view your file content. From documents like DOC, DOCX, PDF, TXT, XLS to videos like FLV, MP4, MOV, MPG, you are able to view them all using this powerful tool.

The main quality of this all-in-one viewer is the simplicity because its main purpose is to accept a large number of file formats, instead of providing a lot of settings and features. For example, after opening a video file you will find that you can just play it but additional options such as: zoom in/out, video acceleration or full-screen mode are not available.

It is recommended for anyone who is searching for a simple tool which helps in extreme situations. For example, if you want to display PSD files but due to some circumstances you cannot install Adobe┬« Photoshop┬«, Free File Viewer allows you to open them without any problem.

Guest #28147449 Do a search and you'll see how annoying the software can be. Free for sure but you'll begin to see messages like "Media player out-dated - click here to update". Removed it and this kind of banners immediatly disappeared. Do not install it!

Guest Horrible little program. Tried to convert all files to its format - forcing one to open files via the "Open with..." path.

Totally blocked opening e-mail attached documents, as the 'open with...' path is not available there.

With no control panel or user interface to set how it operates. Strongly against using it.

Guest This is only a spyware installer.
The program itself won't install if you decline to install all other useless software.
