.piz File Extension

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

what is a .piz file?

PIZ files are known as zipped files since the file extension is actually “zip” spelled in reverse. This is the reason why it is also known as renamed zip file. PIZ files are categorized as compressed files and archives that are used to send zipped email attachments so that the message cannot be blocked by email server filters. PIZ files are also useful when it comes to hiding the file type to prevent opening them. For this reason, opening PIZ files may require users to rename the piz extension to zip first and then use any Zip decompression utility to open them. Since these files are more secure, they are usually utilized by some anti-virus applications and they contribute a lot to the protection of zip archives from viruses. Corel WinZip 16 Pro is an application that can also be used to open PIZ files on Windows. It is an excellent tool used for the compression, sharing, protecting and backing up of files to a disk or for email purposes. Both Windows and MAC can also open PIZ files using the Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe 2011 and Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe 2010 applications.

a word of warning

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