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

what is a .pfc file?

The .pfc file extension popularly stands for personal filing cabinet and this is used by America Online or AOL for the storage of various data such as favorites, e-mails and e-mail addresses as well as other contact information, street addresses, etc. While users are offered the option to store e-mails into filing cabinets through AOL, these stored e-mails are the files that use the .pfc extension and they are usually opened only with AOL. The .pfc file extension is also associated with Pegasus Mail and the .pfc files used by this e-mail system contain data temporarily stored for an imap folder. Corel WordPerfect also uses the .pfc file extension but they only contain PerfectFit filters and not the whole file created using the software. This file extension is also associated with the Presto! Page Manager Software. This is software that allows users to manage, edit and convert documents in the system. The information used by the software for its internal functions are called .pfc files.

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, .pfc. 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.
