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

what is a .sib file?

Sibelius music notation, an application that was launched in 1993, is used to compose and play music and the musical scores created with the use of this application are using the SIB file extension. Whether the software is used to compose music or a device, SIB files pertain to the musical scores created and these files are used no matter what musical instrument is used to compose the musical score. In fact, SIB files are also useful when playing instruments through software. They are the musical notes created but they do not contain any data regarding the audio. These SIB files can be accessed via Windows and MAC OS and they usually come in either text or in musical note forms, but only when Sibelius software installed can these files be opened and accessed. Users can export SIB files to MIDI files and these files could refer to the final copy of the musical scores created or files that are still to be edited.

how to open a .sib file?

a word of warning

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