Tips for Opening PSS Files

When you need to open PSS files, start by double-clicking it. Your computer will try to open it automatically. If that doesn’t work, try the following tips.


1. Download another program.

Different file extensions work with different programs, and it can be difficult to figure out which program opens which files. Here are a few programs that usually work with PSS files:

  • Axialis Screen Saver Producer
  • Paint Shop Pro Sandstone Preset
  • AutoCAD Plot Stamp Settings
  • Pocket SlideShow Converted PowerPoint Presentation
  • Playstation Game File
  • Type Manager PostScript Stub

You can download one of these programs from the software developer’s website.

2. Look at the file type.

The file type can sometimes tell you which program might open the file. If you have PSS files, they are most likely types of CAD Files. A program that works with CAD Files should open PSS files.

Don’t know the file type? You can find it by right-clicking the file and selecting “Properties” or “More Info.” The file type will be listed under “Type of File” or “Kind”.

3. Check with the software developer.

Try contacting the developer of one of the programs mentioned above. They can help you figure out why your PSS file won’t open. Some of the most common developers are listed below.

4. Install a universal file viewer.

Universal file viewers can open many different types of files, depending on the format. If your PSS file won’t open, try installing a universal file viewer like File Magic (Download). Some files aren’t compatible with universal file viewers. These files will only open in binary file format.
