The BIN file is more related to the Binary File than anything else. Binary files are used for a wide range of content and can be linked to many different applications. In general, a BIN file looks like rubbish to a file editor unless there is a trace of the file in the ASCII part of the file.
Determining which program a particular BIN file belongs to is difficult. The context of the file (where it is located) may help. Sometimes a CD or DVD image is circulating as a BIN file. These images must be written to disk or opened using an authorized CD / DVD program. Note: This type of file may be infected and if someone has sent you a file with this name, scan it carefully.
How to open a BIN file (in Windows)
To open a BIN file you need a suitable software such as Binary view ( click to download it ). Without proper Windows software, the message “How do you want to open this file” (Windows 10) or “Windows cannot open this file” (Windows 7) or a similar warning will be displayed. If you can not open your BIN file properly, try right-clicking or long-pressing it. Then click Open with and select an application.

Using disk for storage is unusual, and the file format cannot be converted to modern digital storage formats by manipulating it to extract data and convert it to a format easily used by Android devices or other related digital formats.
Some BIN files are protected and will not be converted. For example, it is not possible to convert media from a copyrighted DVD or CD without breaking the security layer. Note that this is illegal and it is better to buy a digital format from the same media.
