What is a cfg file?

CFG files are usually in plain text file format. They are used for user applications, server processes and operating system settings. CFG may be considered a simple database. Some files are created and modified using an ASCII editor. Others are created and modified as a side-effect of changing settings in a graphical user interface (GUI) program.  A BAT file is very similar file.

Because CFG files store data in different formats they should usually not be opened manually. They may be saved in text format and viewed in a text editor. CFG files vary depending upon the operating system. Generic configuration files are frequently named “config.cfg”.
