What is WAV file extension?

The WAV extension is suitable for files that store audio data. The content of the WAV file is usually raw uncompressed audio material in the PCM format, although the data can also be encoded using many algorithms. The file size depends on the sample rate, e.g. with audio CD quality one second of recording takes 172 KB of memory. WAV files are a very common format recognized by most sound reproduction and processing programs.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the WAV file.

What else may cause problems?
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the WAV file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the WAV 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 WAV 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 WAV 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 WAV file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
