.pd5 File Extension

Developer: Microsoft
File type: Windows Live Photo Gallery Information File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pd5. Files with the file extension .pd5 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pd5 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pd5 file?

The .pd5 file extension is a little similar with the .pd4 file extension because they are both referring to database files created by Windows Live Photo Gallery; software for managing movies and home photos. They are both describing the videos and images created and saved in that software. The metadata can either be file names, image resolution, properties, etc. as long as they describe what the image or video is all about. This file extension can track personal media file information. The Windows Live Photo Gallery application can be used to open .pd5 files. This software is known to be capable of searching, tagging and managing photos and it is often used to share photos and videos online such as on sites like Flicker. Like the .pd4 file extension, the .pd5 file extension can also be renamed to OLD_Pictures.pd5 if the original .pd5 file is corrupted. In this case, a new Pictures.pd5 file will be created by the Windows Live Photo Gallery automatically.

how to open a .pd5 file?

Launch a .pd5 file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .pd5 file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .pd5 files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .pd5 file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .pd5 file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pd5 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, .pd5. 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.
