Developer: N/A
File type: PAQ8F Compressed Archive
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .paq8f. Files with the file extension .paq8f can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .paq8f files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .paq8f file?

PAQ8F files are also compressed files but they are files created by PAQ8F, a program that belongs to the series of programs mainly used to test tradeoffs between the performance of the computer and the rate of compressions. Other programs that belong to the iterative series of programs are the PAQ8A, PAQ8JD, PAQ8, PAQ8B, and a lot more. Although PAQ8F files are known as PAQ8F Compressed Archives and they are supported by several applications like PeaZip, they are rarely used as compression file format. PAQ8F files are mostly opened on Windows with the use of PeaZip. PeaZip is a free utility used to extract, compress, split, encrypt and convert files. This software also supports several file formats which is why it is not that hard to extract files with a different archive format through it. PeaZip allows users to perform these compression tasks with ease, with security as well as convenience when it comes to sharing files.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .paq8f 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, .paq8f. 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.
