.vcs File Extension

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

what is a .vcs file?

A vCalendar event file can be created with a calendar and scheduling application implemented with support for opening and modifying the content of a file stored in the VCS format. The data saved in a vCalendar event file consists of details associated to certain events, scheduled appointments and activities entered by the user of a compatible calendar, event planning and scheduling program. The same programs can usually be deployed to edit or remove entries saved in a vCalendar event file. There are many applications developed for Microsoft Windows-based systems that can be used to create, view and modify the content of these vCalendar event files, and the Microsoft Outlook 2011 software is an email management program implemented with support for these vCalendar event files. Affixed with the .vcs extension, Mac users can install the Apple iCal software to integrate support for creating and modifying the data stored in a vCalendar event file into the system. The Palm Desktop software is a mobile platform application that can be used to create and modify these vCalendar event files. These VCS files are affixed with the .vcs extension.

Apple iCal

Apple iCal

Apple iCal is a personal calendar software that has tools that enable a user to manage his appointments, schedules and other reminders that are personally essential. The name iCal was licensed from Brown Bear Software since 1997. However, before the OS X Mountain Lion was released, iCal was rebranded as simply Calendar last July 2012, which was the first calendar tool for OS X that had support for different calendars with management tools. This was designed by a French team with Jean-Marie Hullot as the leader who’s also known as a friend of Steve Jobs. It is a program compatible for Mac OS X 10.5, Mac OS X 10.6, Mac OS 10.7, OS X Lion and OS X 10.8. What a user can do with iCal are the following: open iCal from the Applications folder or the Dock, create New Calendar from the File menu, schedule an event or create a reminder on the calendar, publish or share calendar using iPad, iPod or iPhone with the option to synchronize, set up iCloud calendar, CalDAV or Exchange calendar account, and subscribe to calendars of other users.
Microsoft Outlook Express

Microsoft Outlook Express

Outlook Express is an email and news client that is integrated with Internet Explorer versions 4.0 through 6.0. It is also bundled with a number of versions of Microsoft Windows, from Windows 98 to Windows Server 2003, and is available for Windows 3.x, Windows NT 3.51, Windows 95 and Mac OS 9. In Windows Vista, Outlook Express was outdated by Windows Mail, then again by Windows Live Mail as separate software in Windows 7. Microsoft Entourage, sold as part of Microsoft Office for Macintosh, has changed the Macintosh version. Outlook Express is a diverse application from Microsoft Office Outlook. The two programs do not share a common codebase, but do share a common architectural philosophy. The similar names lead many people to incorrectly conclusion that Outlook Express is a stripped-down version of Microsoft Office Outlook. Outlook Express utilizes the Windows Address Book to store contact information and incorporates tightly with it. On Windows XP, it also joins together with Windows Messenger.
Microsoft Works

Microsoft Works

Microsoft Works is incorporated package software that was developed by Microsoft. It is less expensive, smaller, and has fewer features than Microsoft Office or other office suites. Its central functionality includes a word processor, a spreadsheet and a database management system. Newer versions have a calendar application and a dictionary while older versions included a terminal emulator. Files with WPS extension is utilized for output files of the Microsoft Works word processing application. These files are classified as text documents that can be created, saved, viewed and edited using the Microsoft Works program. Microsoft Word 2010, Microsoft Publisher 2010, Planamesa NeoOffice, and OxygenOffice Professional are some of the applications that are able to open and view the content of these WPS files. The contents of these WPS files can also be exported to other compatible word document formats. This promotes convenience and efficient document presentation, group collaboration and sharing between users of different systems and word processing applications; however, WPS document cannot be applied with macros and other formatting options available in Microsoft Word; so Microsoft discontinued support and development of the Microsoft Works application with its version 9 and the release of Microsoft Word 2010.

a word of warning

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