What is PS file?

The .PS files refer to PostScript files which are the source code of Postscript scripts. The .PS script files are used for dynamically rendering vector graphics and used in desktop publishing applications. Postscript is also called as page description language. Due to their nature of rendering graphics, the .PS files are widely used nowadays for printer applications too. The .PS files can be programming using Adobe Postscript. The main advantage that .PS files provide to their users is the ability to print directly without the need to open them from any application. Nowadays the .PDF files have replaced .PS files but they are still supported by most of the printers.

What else may cause problems?

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

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