Open Freely Review

Fernando Ortega

A universal file viewer with support for loads and different filetypes

A review of Open Freely by

Open Freely is a versatile universal all-in-one PC utility for opening and editing a growing list of file types. It acts as a Microsoft Office replacement (or alternative) but also packs in a media player, printing features, file compression and decompression and an image viewer. It comes as a freeware application.

Starting off with probably the most popular utility packed into Open Freely is the support for MS Office file formats. With Open Freely, you're able to view and editing formats for Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

The archiver part of Open Freely supports most popular compression formats native to various operating systems such as WinZip, WinRar, TGZ, JAR and GNU zip. Not much more to say on that point as compression utilities are more-or-less the same.

Moving on, Open Freely includes wide support for Audio, Video and Image formats. Open Freely can open and view files like MKV, MP3, MPEG, OGG on the audio/video side, and can view image formats such as TIFF, RAW, PSD, BMP and JPEG among others.

Overall, if you've just purchased a new PC and you don't have much software installed, Open Freely will allow you to view most common file types which normally require expensive software. The price is right and it comes with support for a surprisingly long list of file types.

Installation note: While installing this software, you may be prompted to install additional ad-supported software.

Open Freely is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from office software without restrictions. Open Freely is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
