What is a HTM File? | Overview of HTM File

Did you find an HTM file on your computer and wonder what program should open it? Maybe someone emailed you an HTM file but you're not sure how to use it. Perhaps you tried to open the HTM file but Windows told you that it could not open it.

Before you can open an HTM file (assuming it's even a file format that's intended to be viewed or edited), you'll need to determine what kind of file the .HTM file extension refers to.

 The Brief Introduction of HTM File

A file with the HTM file extension is a Hypertext Markup Language file.

Hypertext Markup Language files are the standard webpage file type on the Internet. HTML files are identical to HTM files.

Other types of files may also use the HTM file extension. If you know of any additional file formats that use the .HTM extension, please let me know so I can update this information.

 How to Open an HTM File?

The easiest way to open an HTM file is to double-click on it and let your PC decide which default application should open the file. If no program opens the HTM file then you probably don't have an application installed that can view and/or edit HTM files.

Warning: Take great care when opening executable file formats received via email or downloaded from websites you're not familiar with.

Any web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc. will open and properly display HTM files. Many programs also exist that are designed to make editing and creating HTM files easy.

If you know of anything else about HTM files that might be useful here, please leave your comment here so that more useful information can be added to this page.

Tip: Use Notepad or another text editor to open the HTM file. HTM files are text-only files meaning any text editor can properly display the file's contents.
