What is CBR file?

.CBR files refer to the collection of compressed data which is stored as Comic book archive file. This file is essentially similar in structure to a .RAR archive package and is in fact a renamed version of it. The .CBR files can contain the compressed versions of several image files from a variety of formats and present it in form of a comic book to the readers.

The pages and images in a CBR file are automatically ordered. Modern Comic book archive files also support the XML tagging functionalities. There are also various sister comic book archive extensions other than .CBR all of which have different encoding techniques.

To do this, right-click on the CBR file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the CBR file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged.
