File extension .LST

File description

LST file format is a general and generic format for compiling a list of objects. This file format is used by several applications to keep a track of their working.

The LST file defines the list of elements or objects which are to be operated or processed by the application. The file is formatted using plain text style so that the users can also read the elements mentioned in it.

Remember!
The .LST file extension can correspond to several not related file formats. If there is more than one file format with the .LST extension, you will probably find most of them at this website. Remember that you need to download a program to support a particular file type. So first look through the entire contents of the website to select a program to support just the file you have.

Other possible reasons why your .LST file does not want to open

In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .LST file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:

1. Incorrect version of the installed application

A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .LST file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .LST file, so download the update and check again.

2. Incorrect .LST file association with the program

If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:

  • Right-click the .LST file
  • Go to the "Open with" - then "Choose default program ..."
  • Locate the appropriate application
  • Click "OK"

3. The file is corrupt

It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
