There are a lot of websites and a bunch of programs that convert files. But how about a program that converts files right on your own PC in File Explorer/Windows Explorer?
We found a free program called File Converter that converts and compresses many file formats from the right-click menu in File Explorer (Windows Explorer for those of you using Windows 7). All you have to do is install File Converter and when you want to convert a file, right-click on the file to begin converting the file or files.
It couldn’t be simpler to use. Just right-click on a file in Windows Explorer/File Explorer, choose File Converter and then choose the format you want to convert your file to. A progress window will open showing the conversion process. The window will close when the file conversion is completed. And… you can even convert several files at a time.
File Converter saves the converted file in the same folder as the original. It keeps the same file name as the original but with the new extension, of course.
Another nice feature of File Converter is that it won’t appear in your right-click menu if you right-click on a file type that it does not support.
File Converter can convert audio, image, video, and documents file types. Here’s a complete list of file types that File Converter supports:
|Supported output formats||Compatible input formats|
|Audio||flac, aac, ogg, mp3, wav||3gp, aiff, ape, avi, bik, cda, flac, flv, m4a, mkv, mov, mp3, mp4, oga, ogg, wav, webm, wma, wmv|
