Open Files From 100 Formats, Including PowerPoint With Open Freely

It can be quite annoying when one has to download and install a separate program for a file that is not supported by existing applications on your computer. It is almost impossible to comprehend that a single software can open a large number of file formats and save us from the trouble of having to install dozens of applications. Open Freely is an amazing free software that allows opening files from over 100 file formats. The supported file types include Microsoft Office documents, audio, video, archive, Google Earth, code and image files. For example, you can not only open PowerPoint Presentations with Open Freely but also watch videos, view images, open code files and see the content of compressed archives from various compression formats.

Open Freely supports multiple instance and therefore you can launch it multiple times for performing numerous tasks simultaneously.
