how to view .dat file
Haffy Ree last edited by
Hey there, So as you can see. I opened a .dat file that is supposed to have numbers and letters (text only) there is nothing else besides in that dat file, and yet i am unable to view this file properly
Is there any way to convert or i am not sure what am i supposed to do to read this text file in a human language
Any help is appreciated, thanks

Notepad++ is a text editor.
It works on text files.
You do not have a text file.
Thus, Notepad++ isn’t the tool to help you.

As Alan hinted, you supposed incorrectly. That file obviously has many binary bytes beyond plain text. Usually files that are named
.datare binary files, not text files.
We actually have a whole FAQ on that
