A .PAT file, also known as the pattern file, is a bitmap image file that is used as a square file to create patterns or textures to fill an area or a background. The PAT file images are supported with sizes ranging from 8*8 pixels to 256*256 pixels. Further, the PAT file images can be accessed by some of the popular graphics and photo tools, such as Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, and Corel Paint Shop. While the PAT files are used for defining the texture and patterns, there is no need for converting the PAT file to other standard image format types, such as JPG, PNG, and GIF. However, the graphics and photo tools allow the PAT file to be converted to the standard image format.
When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the PAT extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of PAT file conversion to a different format.
We hope we helped you solve the problem with the PAT file.

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the PAT file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the PAT 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 PAT 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 PAT 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 PAT file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
