There are times when you only need to display the contents of the GZ file. In this case, it is enough that you use the so-called GZ Viewer. Such a program allows us only to display the contents of the GZ file. You have several options to view the contents of the GZ file:
Our GZ Viewer did not live up to what I expected? Choose something else One of them is to use software that works with the GZ file. You can try to open your GZ file with one of these applications. By using the dedicated software you will have more options, e.g. editing the GZ file or converting the GZ file to a different file format.
Note, however, that this solution requires you to download and install the software dedicated to handling the GZ file on your device. In this case, it is not possible to view the GZ file online. This method is more complicated, but it offers more possibilities for working with the GZ file. You can find some examples of dedicated software below, and the full list is here GZ File Opener

If this is the case, you can try to preview the contents of GZ file with "Notepad". This solution does not guarantee that the problem will be solved, but it will often allow you to view the data in the GZ file to some extent.

If our theory proves to be correct, you should see the tree of files contained in the archive. To get information about what kind of data it is, go to the subpage with information about the GZ file extension.
