File Viewer is a small application developed in Java, specifically to help people view HEX and ASCII encoding schemes of any file from your computer.
This application does not require installation, as it is portable. This means you can copy the program files to any location on the hard drive and run it by clicking the executable. It is also possible to use it on any computer you have access to, by dropping the aforementioned files to a USB flash drive.
Aside from that, you should know the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to suffer any changes due to File Viewer.
In order to view the HEX and ASCII contents of a file, all you have to do is click the “Open” button and select the item that interests you. The encoding schemes are loaded and displayed in a few seconds, yet you should keep in mind that this might also depend on your system’s performance and file size.
This tool incorporates the “drag and drop” function, a very useful feature, as it facilitates individuals to manage their items in a more efficient manner.
In Softpedia tests, File Viewer had a minimum impact on system performance, which means you can run it alongside other programs, without experiencing problems. Help contents are provided online, yet they are not actually needed, as it is very easy to use.
All in all, File Viewer is an efficient piece of software, with a good response time and a user-friendly interface. We did not register any errors or crashes during our tests.
