PRF file extension - Microsoft Outlook profile file

What is prf file? How to open prf files?

The prf file extension is associated with Microsoft Outlook, a personal information manager, which is part of Microsoft Office, developed by Microsoft Corporation.

The *.prf files contain user specific information and preferences, such as signatures, folder setting etc..

Most settings for Microsoft Outlook can be efficiently configured, updated, and deployed to users by using standard deployment tools — typically by using the Custom Installation Wizard before installation, and the Custom Maintenance Wizard after installation. Settings can also be captured by using the Office Profile Wizard, which results in an OPS file that can be deployed to users.
However, to modify existing settings or to configure settings that are outside the norm — such as those not included in the wizards — you can create and edit the *.prf Outlook profile file , and then deploy that to your users by using the installation or maintenance wizards, or by deploying the .prf file by itself.
