File Converter is a very simple tool which allows you to convert and compress one or several file(s) using the context menu in windows explorer. And it's FREE!

The interface is designed to be as light as possible to keep the application pleasant to use.

It supports a lot of different file formats:

* You need to have Microsoft Office installed and activated in order to convert Office documents.

You can heavily customize the application in order to add / remove conversion presets in the files context menus or edit the existing one to change the conversion options.

I hope this application will help you :)

It is open source (GLP v3), free and without any adds so you just have to enjoy it!


File Converter is a personal open source project started in 2014. I have put hundreds of hours developping, refining and tuning File Converter with the goal of making the conversion and compression of files an easy task for everyone.
