.bct File Extension

Developer: Adobe Systems
File type: Adobe Bridge Thumbnail Cache File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .bct. Files with the file extension .bct can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .bct files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .bct file?

Files in the BCT format are classified as data files and used by the Adobe Bridge CS6 software as cache files. Data files used by associated programs can be cache files used to store certain data that can be cached to conserve disk storage space and reduce the memory resources needed by an application to open these files and present the features corresponding to the details stored in those cache files. These .bct files are also more specifically known as Adobe Bridge thumbnail cache files. Users of Microsoft Windows-based systems can install the Adobe Bridge CS6 program and begin to implement support for these BCT files, and Mac users can also do this because Adobe Systems offers a version developed for Mac platforms. The Adobe Bridge CS6 software is classified as a file management program. These BCT files are referenced by this software when it needs to display details of images integrated into the project output file being viewed by a user. Files appended with the BCT extension are created alongside BC files to complete the cache data associated to a project developed using Adobe Bridge CS6. Cache settings stored in a BCT file can also be entered and modified by the user with the Adobe Bridge CS6 software.

how to open a .bct file?

Launch a .bct file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .bct file will open it.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .bct files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .bct. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
