What is ORIG file?

The .ORIG extension comes about when a user tries to create a backup of a file on their system. The user then stores the backup or the duplicate as the normal file while keeping the original file with the extension of “.orig” to know it is the original one. It is usually good practice to ensure the right kind of naming system is followed in order to recall the actual extension of the file being duplicated. Both Windows and Mac operating systems have the ability to open .orig files with the application that created it. However, if the application is not available, the user may face some obstacles in opening the file.

Programs that support ORIG file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the ORIG file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

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

First - the ORIG 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 ORIG 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 ORIG 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 ORIG file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
