How to Open a PFL File

File names that end with the "PFL" extension are data files on Windows computers. Two programs can create and open PFL files: Business and Family Lawyer -- fillable forms for a variety of legal documents -- and PhotoFiltre -- a viewer and editor for digital images. If you already have one of the two programs installed on the computer that stores the PFL file, that program probably is the right choice to open the file. A given PFL file can be opened by only one of the programs -- not both -- as they manipulate very different types of data.
