DMG files are the Apple disk image files which are often used to install programs in the Mac OS. But sometimes these files are also used to compress the contents into a single file. But these DMG files can be opened only on Mac OS. Being Mac OS specific files, these are not generally supported in Windows even by some of the popular third party programs. This can become a problem if you are using a Windows PC and someone sends you a DMG file over an email message or you have to extract some important documents compressed inside a DMG file. Thanks to the free DMG Extractor, now you can view and extract the contents of DMG files in Windows easily.

After the installation the DMG Extractor window opens up by itself. Then you can click on the Open button and select a DMG file to open it in the DMG Extractor.
