How to open ASC file?

What is ASC file extension?

ASC is a text file extension that contains characters from the ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) encoding standard. This solution assigns a number between 0 and 127 for each character. The characters are encoded with 7 bits. The character set in this standard does not include diacritical marks. Characters 0 - 31 are reserved for non-printing control characters, e.g. character 10 (LF) indicates the next line. To obtain characters typical only for a given language based on ASCII, the ISO 646 standard was developed.

What else may cause problems?
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the ASC file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the ASC file may be incorrectly linked (associated) with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this link by yourself. To do this, right-click on the ASC file # that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the ASC file should be solved forever.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the ASC file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
