What is a ME file?

ME files are Readme files, which contain basic documentation for a software program. Typically, these files are named READ.ME. Most ME files are plain text files, so you can open them in any text editor.

More Information

READ.ME files may be packaged with a program installer or created as part of a program's installation process. These files often contain:

  • A description of the program and its functions
  • Copyright information and developer credits
  • A changelog documenting updates made in various versions of the program
  • Troubleshooting information

While nearly all READ.ME files consist solely of plain text, they may be formatted using different markup languages. For example, a READ.ME file may use Markdown, AsciiDoc, or reStructuredText to denote headings, bulleted lists, and other formatting supported by some text editors.

How to open a ME file

You can open an ME file in any text editor, including Microsoft Notepad (Windows), Apple TextEdit (Mac), or Microsoft Visual Studio Code (multiplatform). If your ME file is formatted using a markup language, you may want to open it in a text editor that supports that markup language, to view its formatting correctly.
