PUB file extension
PUB File Extension Are you attempting unsuccessfully to open a .pub file on your computer? Apparently a lot of users are, judging from the many queries and complaints on the Internet about this issue. Although .pub files are fairly common, as they are produced by Microsoft Publisher, which is a part of most high-end MS Office packages, obviously a lot of people are confused by them. “Many users have issues opening MS .pub files because they do not have a copy of Publisher installed on their computer.” (File Extension Type) Microsoft Publisher is a desktop publishing program, used to create anything from business cards and postcards to business flyers or newsletters. It differs from MS Word as “the emphasis is placed on page layout and design rather than text composition and proofing.” (Wikipedia)

MS Publisher uses a proprietary file format and was introduced in 1991.(Pub Extension File) Documents created with MS Publisher are called print-ready and can be used for numerous purposes by small businesses and for home use. But if you do not have MS Publisher and someone sends you a .pub file, what can you do? Even experts online say “There are currently no plug-ins, viewers or shortcuts for .pub files created by MS Publisher. “(Desktop Pub. About) or “Unlike the other popular applications in MS Office, Microsoft does not provide a free viewer for viewing .pub files.” (File Extension Type) So, do you have to buy a copy of MS Publisher to view your files? Read on.

However, what many people do not realize is that Microsoft does offer a free trial version of Publisher 2007 that you can download and try free for 60 days . And the best part is that Microsoft itself notes “After the trial expires, you can still use the free trial version as a viewer for .pub files, even though you can no longer create or change publications.” (Microsoft) So if you have a .pub file you can’t open, just download the free trial version from Microsoft and you should be set.

If you will be working with several people who don’t have MS Publisher, you may want to consider converting the .pub files to a more common file format. You can visit the free online file conversion site Zamzar and convert .pub files to pdf, doc or html file formats. (Zamzar)
