I have .prn files that were generated when I saved online work using the 'print to file' feature available in the print menu. The files were saved in 2020. I have always been able to dc these files, and they would open, then I could print them. I use the same laptop running Windows 8 and the same printer. I tried to open these files, and they no longer open. I have tried many programs, Firefox, Chrome, Word, Microsoft Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Adobe Readed DC, and Libre Office, used online prn to prt and prn to pdf file converters, downloaded Printfil, changed extensions to .pdf and .xps, and taken my laptop to a tech admin who copied the files to his personal laptop to attempt to open them using the full version of Adobe. Nothing works. This has affected every .prn file I have, not just the 2 I absolutely need to view or print. Can someone offer a solid solution that will allow either printing, viewing or conversion that will allow print or view?
I'm sorry if the tags are wrong, I was unable to use prn, printer, or files.
