How to open CHM file?

What is CHM file extension?

The CHM extension is specific to help files in Windows systems. These files are generated based on previously created code in the HTML markup language. This code is compiled into the CHM archive. Such files may contain, in addition to text, images and hyperlinks. CHM help files are used, in addition to Windows itself, by many applications running under that system. The HTML Help Workshop compiler is used to create such files.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the CHM file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.
What else may cause problems?
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the CHM file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the CHM 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 CHM 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 CHM 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 CHM file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
