What is HTM file?

HTM file contains markup code in Hypertext Markup Language format, and shares many similarities with HTML. This is a standard document file used for creating static web sites. HTM stores markup code used to display images and text. This format is very popular among website designers and developers.


Despite many differences, HTM and HTML file extensions are identical in regard to stored data, and are used for the same purposes. HTML files are more popular for the reason that HTM format is used mainly for assuring compatibility with legacy oprating systems (DOS, Windows 3.x and OS/2.), which recognize 8-character long file names with 3-character long extension names. HTML document can be stored using either of the formats.

HTM file capabilities

HTM file stores content in plan text format, which enables users to easily modify the data using any standard text editor. HTM files can hold complete website project structure. HTM file, beside s text, can store links/references to image files, audio files, video files and references to scripts created with some other programming language.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the HTM file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the HTM file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the HTM 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 HTM file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the HTM file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
