What is a PAGES file?

A PAGES files is a document created by Apple Pages, a word processor and page layout program. It may be a basic text document or a complex multi-page brochure. PAGES files can include text, pictures, tables, graphs, and charts and may be created from a blank page or built from a template.

More Information

PAGES files are stored in the .ZIP format and include a .JPG file and an optional .PDF file that provide a preview for the document. Therefore, if you want to view the contents of a PAGES file manually in Windows, use the following instructions:

  1. Rename the ".pages" file extension to ".zip."
  2. Extract the resulting Zip file with a Zip decompression utility. The extracted files should contain a folder named QuickLook. Navigate to this folder.
  3. In the QuickLook folder, open the file Thumbnail.jpg. This file only gives a preview of the first page of the document, but can still be helpful in some situations.
  4. In the QuickLook folder, there may also be a PDF file named Preview.pdf. Open this file to view a preview of the entire PAGES document. Note that the PDF file is only created if the user chose to save the original document with additional preview information in Pages.

NOTE: Pages is part of Apple's iWork suite, which also includes Keynote (for presentations) and Numbers (for spreadsheets).
