File Extension TSV

File type: Tab Separated Values File

About the TSV file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

These files are used for storing and distributing data in a special tab separated format such that the data in the columns are separated using the help of tabs. These files are very similar to the Comma Separated Files where in the data in the columns are separated by the help of commas instead of tabs like in the TSV files. These files are saved in plain ASCII text format and can be opened or edited with the help of any standard text editor such as Notepad or WordPad. These files can be exported to several spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel and are more often saved with the extension .TSV but .TAB is also used occasionally.
