Right click on the file and go to "properties" and look to see what the file extension is. It will be something like this .wmv or .jpg. Then you can find out what program you need to open it.

When i right mouse click on and go to properties it says "file". Its a program so what should i rename the file? should it be .exe or something? The file size is one file of 1.6GB. Or should i rename it .iso? i just have no idea how to get it to work

what kind of file do you think it is? in other words, were you downloading a game, or a video, or a song?
