F filename suffix is mostly used for Fortran Source Code files. F files are supported by software applications available for devices running Mac OS, Windows. F file format, along with 1055 other file formats, belongs to the Developer Files category. The most popular program for handling F files is Pro Fortran, but users can choose among 6 different programs that support this file format.
The list that follows enumerates programs compatible with F files, divided into 2 categories based on operating system on which they are available. F files can be encountered on all system platforms, including mobile, yet there is no guarantee each will properly support such files.
Being unable to open files with F extension can be have various origins. Fortunately, most common problems with F files can be solved without in-depth IT knowledge, and most importantly, in a matter of minutes. We have prepared a listing of which will help you resolve your problems with F files.
Problems with opening and working with F files are most probably having to do with no proper software compatible with F files being present on your machine. The most obvious solution is to download and install Pro Fortran or one to the listed programs: PSPad, Microsoft Visual Studio, Intel Visual Fortran Compiler. On the top of the page a list that contains all programs grouped based on operating systems supported can be found. The safest method of downloading Pro Fortran installed is by going to developer’s website () and downloading the software using provided links.
If the problems with opening F files still occur even after installing Pro Fortran, it is possible that you have an outdated version of the software. Check the developer’s website whether a newer version of Pro Fortran is available. Sometimes software developers introduce new formats in place of that already supports along with newer versions of their applications. This can be one of the causes why F files are not compatible with Pro Fortran. All of the file formats that were handled just fine by the previous versions of given program should be also possible to open using Pro Fortran.
If you have the latest version of Pro Fortran installed and the problem persists, select it as the default program to be used to manage F on your device. The process of associating file formats with default application may differ in details depending on platform, but the basic procedure is very similar.

Should the problem still occur after following steps 1-3, check if the F file is valid. Problems with opening the file may arise due to various reasons.
Should it happed that the F is infected with a virus, this may be that cause that prevents you from accessing it. It is advised to scan the system for viruses and malware as soon as possible or use an online antivirus scanner. F file is infected with malware? Follow the steps suggested by your antivirus software.
If the F file was sent to you by someone else, ask this person to resend the file to you. The file might have been copied erroneously and the data lost integrity, which precludes from accessing the file.

Sometimes in order to access files user need to have administrative privileges. Log out of your current account and log in to an account with sufficient access privileges. Then open the Fortran Source Code file.
If the systems has insufficient resources to open F files, try closing all currently running applications and try again.
Up-to-date system and drivers not only makes your computer more secure, but also may solve problems with Fortran Source Code file. It is possible that one of the available system or driver updates may solve the problems with F files affecting older versions of given software.
