TGZ files are basically used on Linux and UNIX systems. It’s a kind of archive file that comes with the extension of .tar.gz or .tar and is comparable to ZIP. Some users need to open TGZ files on Windows 10. Here is how to launch TGZ files directly on Windows 10:

It’s one of the most popular compression tools having nearly one billion users. Apart from the compression features, it also offers various tools to backup and protect the data, file encryption features, etc. that provide enhanced security and comfort to the particular files.

WinZip is a great tool and can launch file formats on Windows 10, such as ZIP, RAR, GZ, ZIPX, 7Z, ISO, TGZ, GZP, IMG, and XZ files. If you are using Mac, then WinZip is an excellent tool for managing ZIP and RAR files.

Using 7-Zip File Archiving Utility

Windows 10 doesn’t provide any in-built feature to extract TGZ files, but you can use a third-party file launching tool on your device to open the TGZ archive.

There are several archive utilities available for Windows 10 that you may choose to extract the TGZ files. Here we are using 7-Zip Utility to launch TGZ files on Windows 10.

  • In the beginning, launch the webpage of 7-Zip and then hit the Download tab. You can choose between these two editions: 32 bit and 64 bit 7-Zip Utility.
  • Then, launch the installer “7-Zip” in order to add the software to your Windows 10.

  • Finally, you may perform a double click on the files into the archive section to launch them from the 7-Zip utility page.

Converting TGZ Files to ZIP Format

Window 10 File Explorer included a feature to extract the ZIP files. Thus, you may easily launch the contents of TGZ files by converting them to the ZIP format.

You may use the Extract All option in order to decompress the ZIP files. You have to convert the TGZ archive to the ZIP file and then extract it from its section. To do so, follow these instructions carefully:
