What is directory file? How to open directory files?

The DIRECTORY file extension is mainly relegated to Linux KDE and used for one of its settings files. These *.directory files contains the folder viewing settings.

The default software associated to directory file type:

Company or developer:

KDE is desktop system for Linux, BSD, Solaris, Unix and other Unix-based operating systems. KDE contains basic desktop functions and applications for daily needs as well as tools and documentation for developers to write stand-alone applications for the system.

Help how to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .directory file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
