    How to open .HEIC files


    I just got a bunch of photos from a friends' iPhone but I can't open them on my Windows 10. They are all encoded as .heic files:

    If I open any of those files in the Photos app, it shows that it can't read them. If I then go into Settings and scroll down, it has this link:

    Which opens the Store app:

    The thing that irks me is that they want money for that.

    Does anyone know how I can open those pictures without paying Microsoft more money?

    :)

    HEIC file viewing

    I have the HEIC Image extensions and the HEVC video extensions on my Windows 10 PC but the TWINUI application will still not open the HEIC file. Any suggestions?

    I have tried converting it to JPG using the APowersoft application but it downloads the file to a location that does not seem to exist on my PC - "...Users/[user name]\AppData\temp...

    Thanks.

    Hi Edward,

    We need more information about your concern. Are you trying to convert and open other image format to HEIC? If yes, a certain program will be needed to open that kind of file, we suggest checking the Windows Store for programs that can convert other image
    format to HEIC. Make sure to download the program with the highest rating and good reviews.

    Regards.
