What Is the File Extension VCF?


Files with a VCF file extension -- also known as vCards -- contain the contact details of a person or organization and are the digital equivalent of a standard business card. After receiving a vCard from one of your contacts, you can either directly import it into a program that supports this format or convert it to a text-based format to export the contact details stored in the card to a spreadsheet or database.

Opening a vCard

  • Windows includes an address book app that supports the vCard format. To access the app, open the Start menu under Windows 7 or the Start screen under Windows 8.1 and type Contacts in the search bar. Click the Import button to import the VCF file to your Windows address book.

    Alternatively, many popular email and productivity applications can also import vCards, such as Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail.
