.cdr File Extension

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

what is a .cdr file?

Files appended with the CDR extension are generally classified as vector graphics files. Digital images are stored with the implementation of certain file encoding and compression specifications developed by different application creators, companies and organizations. Vector graphics refer to digitized drawings and animated sequences using software developed for creating these still images and digital motion graphics. Vector graphics files saved in the CDR format are also called CorelDRAW image files. Users of Microsoft Windows-based systems can create, open and view the content of a CDR file with the CorelDraw software among other Corel applications supported by Microsoft Windows. Mac users can on the other hand install the Inkscape software, particularly the version developed for Mac platforms, to create and open these CDR files. Since vector graphics files in the CDR format are not recognized by many applications, the CorelDraw software among other programs integrated with support for the creation of these CDR files can be used to export these CDR files to other more widely used image file compression formats like JPEG and so on.

how to open a .cdr file?

Launch a .cdr 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 .cdr file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .cdr files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cdr file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cdr file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .cdr 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, .cdr. 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.
