How to open file with UNKNOWN extension?

UNKNOWN file description

Normally every file system has its own extension that an operating system will recognize. But in some cases, there might not be any specific software to open a file or it can not show any kind of extension as the file type is not associated with the particular OS. This is when the files are tagged as Unknown. These files stay unknown until you get a suitable editor or software to run it. You can use a notepad to open it and check the content inside. If you can get inside and view them, it becomes a lot easier for you to understand the kind of software that you will need to open this kind of file.
