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

.ychat files are known as Yahoo! Messenger log files that are mainly used in MAC OS. Yahoo! Messenger is a popular applications used for online chatting where users can connect to other users from other parts of the world. These .ychat files are files containing the message logs that users send and receive during the chat. These files usually consist of information about the user such as the date as well as the contact numbers and email addresses, the filenames used by the user, etc. These files help users review the history of their conversation. In other words, the conversation logged during the time of the chat are all saved using the .ychat file extension and they can be restored or accessed in case the user wants to check back on it again. The .ychat files can obviously be opened with the use of Yahoo! Messenger but in case the user wants to open them without this application, they can use .ychat file converters and .ychat file editors to do so.

a word of warning

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