The SKC file extension is commonly known as SideKick Card File and was developed by the company Borland. The file is described as a database which is created with Borland SideKick and is known as a personal information manager or PIM program. It is also called a card file because it consists of a list of personal contacts and it also includes an archive of communications, memos and calendar events. SideKick 99 was the last version of SideKick and this software was developed for Windows 98 platform.

Borland SideKick

Borland SideKick

Borland SideKick is a PIM (Personal Information Manager), introduced by Philippe Kahn in 1983. It was originally known as TSR software or a Terminate and Stay Resident program until it was transferred to windows and finally became a PIM. It simply works by loading in the memory then enables computer to go back to its DOS command prompt. This sequence allows users to pull up another application by pressing Control + Alt that were set as its hotkey by default. Immediate task switching in a DOS programmed in single-tasking was made possible by Borland Sidekick. It comes with other features such as calculator for scientific, business, formula and programmer purposes. It has a personal calendar and phone dialer or address book. It also includes a Notepad text editor that can hold up to 9 files and a terminal communication program, called ASCII chart.

a word of warning

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