If you can’t view the MAC file by double-clicking it, try opening it in a different program. Some of the most popular programs for opening MAC files are Unknown Apple II File, Daqarta Extended Audio Data, and MacPaint Bitmap Graphic. Check out the developers’ websites, download one or more of these programs, then try to open your MAC file again.

Get a Clue From the File Type

One file extension can be used for multiple types of files. Knowing the type of file you have can help you find out how to open it. Most MAC files are categorized as Raster Image Files, which can be opened by numerous software packages. See if you have a program already installed on your computer that’s designed to open Raster Image Files. Hopefully, this program might also work with your MAC file.
