.ygf File Extension

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

what is a .ygf file?

The .ygf file extension is mainly associated with the yEd Graph Editor Program, software used to create and edit graphs and effective software used to create high quality diagrams in a jiffy. This software also allows users to manually create these graphs and import data from other sources to be analyzed. The .ygf files that are used by this application refer to the storage of vertices and edges that are found in graphs such as the layout of the graph. These files are usually saved in a binary format. These files are convenient files because it is possible to save various types of diagrams and graphs whether the graphs are flowcharts, networks, family trees and class diagrams. They can be accessed on MAC OS, Windows and Linux and opened using the yWorks yEd Graph Editor, YGF converter software and YGF editor software.

how to open a .ygf file?

Launch a .ygf 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 .ygf 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 .ygf files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ygf file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ygf file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

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