How to Open DCX Files


A DCX file (also called a "Graphics Multipage PCX" file) is used to transmit multipage fax documents. DCX files are most commonly used with Microsoft's Visual FoxPro program--a programming language in Windows. Windows does not come with a program that is capable of viewing DCX files. If you do not have Microsoft's Visual FoxPro, or if you simply want to view the contents of the DCX file, there are third party programs available (e.g. Smart FaxSee) that will allow you to view DCX files.

Things You'll Need

  • Smart FaxSee
  • Download and install Smart FaxSee (link available in "Resources").

  • Run Smart FaxSee. Click "File" and select "Open."

  • Browse to the DCX file you want to open. This will open the DCX file in the main window. From here, the DCX file can be viewed, edited, or printed.

Tips & Warnings

  • Other programs capable of opening DCX files include XP DCX File Viewer, Pcx-Dcx Fax Viewer, and Advanced TIFF Editor. All of these have free trials available that will allow you to view as many DCX files as you want for a short period of time.
