Unless there are suggested applications listed below the extension description, that are able to open the system files, there is usually no way to directly open or access system files as their functionality is only as part of the operating system.

Any attempts to edit system files is strongly discouraged, as it can cause the system to be corrupted and not work properly.

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.
