At almost 70 years old, I am only fairly computer literate. I opened the app store to see what I might be able to use to open some old files. Of course the page was full. I just selected what had the best ratings with a lot of reviews and really lucked out. I had some very old files up to 13 years old-a few of which were zipped; mainly MS Word docs, which I couldn’t open on a very old backup (at least 8 years old). This app suggested Dr. Unarchiver, which worked perfectly. They both installed rapidly on my Mac. So for my purpose, I was relieved both at how easy they were to use (just drage and drop) and how they didn’t mess up my operating system.

Very useful but also causes problems


For what it’s intended, this app is fast and very useful. However, it’s caused problems by taking over ownership of files that should be opened by other applications. For example, double-clicking on an Adobe Illustrator file opens “Open Any Files” instead of Illustrator. After correcting that, a couple of weeks later it happens again.

The most frustrating instance was when “Open Any Files” took over Microsoft Outlook messages. That prevented Outlook’s and Spotlight’s search indexing, effectively disabling searching in Outlook. It took me me more than a week to figure out that this is what was wrong. I corrected that, but after updating to High Sierra, “Open Any Files” once again claimed ownership of this file type.

I know “ownership” isn’t the right word, but can’t think of the right word at the moment. What I’m talking about is if you “Get Info” on a file, “Open Any Files” shows up as the default “Open With” application.

This frustration has happened frequently enough that I uninstalled “Open Any Files”

(Also, just a minor point…but grammatically speaking, shouldn’t the name be “Open Any File” without the “s”?)

Developer Response

Thank you so much for your suggestions and we will continue our work to update the features of this APP in order to provide quality service and product.

Opens many files, not ones I needed, but becomes default App...


I tried this mainly to open some Windows files some of my associates send me. The main issue was XPS files, which MS uses instead of PDF. Preview (as other PDF readers) does not open them. "Open ANY Files" did not open it either. So I guess the App should be called “Open Many Files”

A big negative: I agree with a previous review, the arbitrary “take over” of default App for so many file types was extremely frustrating. I am only glad I did not want to keep the App, becasue it would have been difficult to reset all the App defaults. Removing “Open Any FIles” seems to have cleared this up.

Developers, add common Windows file formats and stop hijacking the defaults and you have a much more useful App.
