What is SH file?

Files with the .SH file format are basically self-extracting archive files. These files normally comprise of a shell script and select files with instructions on how to extract the contents of a .SH format file archive.

The .SH format is mainly used for the Unix based shell files and are developed by the Unix shar utility application. These are used for the scripts that are supposed to run on the Unix command prompt. The .SH files run on the Unix OS, though, systems that are similar to the Unix OS may also make use of this format.

Programs that support SH file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the SH 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 SH file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

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