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

what is a .pcr file?

Files with the .pcr extension are files created by PCMark Vantage wherein this program is mainly used for the creation of performance benchmarks for all programs in a Windows computer. In other words, this is a program used to test the performance of all programs found in a Windows computer, including the OS itself. With this, the results of the test performance, whether it is the performance of the CPU, the disk or the memory that’s tested; are called .pcr files. They contribute a lot to improving the function of Windows and its programs as well as even games, music and other applications found in that system. Files with the .pcr extension are also project files created by Creatcard; software that allows users to create and edit greeting cards, wherein these .pcr files are called postcard files. Aside from that, the .pcr file extension is also used by applications such as Print Shop Deluxe and PrintMaster, wherein they are used to create greeting cards too. The .pcr files used in these applications are called image files.

a word of warning

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