File Extension ODF
Have you encountered a problem with a ODF file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a ODF file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your ODF file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.
The file extension ODF is the general extension of the Open Document for Office Application Standard, also known as OpenDocument. Originally developed by Sun Microsystems and based on XML, the standard has been defined and developed by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS).
The files may contain various data, texts, pictures, tables or even presentations. However, the endings corresponding to the content are more common, the general ending is rarely or fluently used.
OpenDocument is the native format of OpenOffice.Org Suite.

How to open a ODF file? Advice and guidance
Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the ODF file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a ODF file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support ODF files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a ODF file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all ODF files.
Despite the described problem with ODF there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:
- verify that the ODF file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the ODF file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
