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

what is a .mpt file?

The MPT file extension is known as the Microsoft Project Template. It is a data file template associated with the Microsoft Project. The default project template file is saved with the filename "Global.mpt." The global file (Global.mpt) is a master template file that can contain formatting information for all projects but it cannot store tasks, resources, or assignments. It contains the framework for a deadline schedule, a table used for delegating jobs or a ledger sheet that can hold budget information for a particular project. When a user fills in the information and saves the document for a particular project, the file extension changes to .mpp and the .mpt file is ready for use again. It contains a form that can be used for the same or different projects. The MPT file extension serves as a marker, signaling that the file is accessible with Microsoft Project or a compatible program. Files in the MPT file format can be opened with Moos Project Viewer and MPXJ programs in Microsoft Windows, Mac OS and Linux platforms.

a word of warning

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