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

what is a .pea file?

PEA file archives may contain one or more files or even folders or entire directories of files that have been compressed using the data compression and encoding specifications integrated into the file compression algorithm used by PeaZIP. The data in files that are included in a PeaZIP archive has been compressed for better portability, because the size of these files are reduced upon compression of the files. PeaZIP is a file compression tool that is integrated with a simple to operate GUI (Graphical User Interface). There are versions of this software that are implemented with support for widely used releases of Microsoft Windows, while there are also versions of this file compression tool that can be installed in computers that run on Linux platforms. These PeaZIP files are affixed with the .pea extension.

a word of warning

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