Opening 10 files

Have a problem opening a .10 file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what 10 files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .10 file type?

Numerical filename extensions such as ".10" are most often used by Pro/Engineer, a very complex and equally powerful CAD (Computer-Aided Design) system by PTC, targeting a number of industry, science, medical and many other technology-intensive areas.

With Pro/Engineer, numerical extensions are used to denote versioned project files. A versioned project is a backup copy of a Pro/Engineer project, made before any changes are actually committed to it. Each editing session produces a versioned project backup, so a .10 file is the tenth version of a Pro/Engineer project file.

Versioned Pro/Engineer project backups can be opened the same way as regular project files, as well as imported into other compatible CAD applications.

Differently, the dotted string of characters ".10" can sometimes either be, or appear a filename extension. Filenames—especially, if they belong to video, audio, e-book, TV-show files—can often contain trailing dotted numerical portions (e.g., "My wedding.10.mov") to indicate the order of clips, or series. Such a dotted string (.10) can easily become an extension, if the original extension of a filename is lost or truncated. If the original file type is known, a proper extension should be added to the filename manually.

Besides, the same trailing ".10" string can also appear an extension, if the "Hide extensions..." option is turned on in the MS Windows file manager (Windows Explorer), which is the default behavior. To avoid confusion, as well as for security reasons, that option should always be turned off.

Apart from the above, the .10 extension can also be encountered in game music files. Such binary files with sequential numerical extensions contain digital audio data used to play in-game music in certain video games. For instance, such .10 music files are used in the Salt Lake Winter Olympics 2002 video game.
