File type: Configuration
The CFG file extension is the format used to store configuration files. The files with the .cfg are created to change program settings and should not be modified in any way.
These files are used by various computer applications, Operating Systems and processes for definition of initial settings. Any computer program can use files in the .cfg but the location can give the user information as to what program uses it.
Usually, files with the .cfg file extension are line based, which means that it only contains one line for every setting. It does not have any strong conventions or set standards. They can also be generally written in ASCII and may be viewed using any basic text editor.
