SCR file extension - Microsoft Word for DOS bitmap iamge

What is scr file? How to open scr files?

File type specification:

Bitmap image file type icon Bitmap image file type

scr file icon: scr filetype icon

The scr file extension is associated with Microsoft Word, a powerful authoring program that gives you the ability to create and share documents by combining a comprehensive set of writing tools with the easy-to-use Microsoft Office Fluent user interface, which is part of Microsoft Office.

The scr files were used by the DOS version of Microsoft Word for bitmap pictures, which were created by a screenshot utility named "Capture", that was part of the application.

This format is extremely similar to PCX file format and is compressed using essentially the same Run-length Compression scheme.

This scr file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
