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

what is a .wgt file?

The .wgt file extension is used by three applications. One is the Opera Web browser. These .wgt files are known as widgets used by this browser as a small Web application. These files contain information about widget configuration, images, indexes, style sheets, JavaScripts, etc. and they usually come in a compressed archive format. .wgt files are also known as files that contain records for the Xwindow Neuro Bio Clusters project that come in binary format. The application Xwindow Neuro Bio Clusters is used by neurobiologists to perform researches and this software function as a virtual workstation. The IMPS program also makes use of the .wgt file extension in order for the software to perform its functions such as the processing of census and survey data.

Opera Web browser

Opera Web browser

The Opera Web browser is a popular Web browser developed by Opera Software. This browser works just like what other browsers do and that is to display Web sites, manage contacts, download files, send and receive emails, chat on IRC, as well as read Web feeds. Opera features a lot of user-friendly features such as tabbed browsing wherein the user can browse multiple sites in one window. It also features ad blocking and fraud protection that allows users to enjoy browsing without annoying ads popping up when they are not wanted as well as allows users to be protected from fraud and spam. Opera also allows users to download files from the Internet though the BitTorrent client as well as it is complete with a mail client and IRC chat for email messaging and instant messaging. This browser is also equipped with a speed dial feature and this provides users convenience when it comes to adding unlimited pages in thumbnail form so that when users open a new tab, he or she can just click on the thumbnail corresponding the website he or she wants to visit without having to enter the full URL on the address bar.

a word of warning

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