View MPP Files: View Microsoft project files with ease

The meaning of MPP files

MPP stands for Microsoft Project Plan, and represents the file extension to the project plans created by Microsoft Project. If you for instance create a plan called My_project, Microsoft project will save it in the file My_project.mpp.

The .mpp project format is proprietary to Microsoft. In fact, only Microsoft Project is capable of writing .mpp files. However, there are many mpp viewers that can open these files and read the content. When searching for a project viewer, you may come across terms such as "mpp viewer", "project viewer", "Microsoft project viewer", "mpp reader" etc. Essentially all of these terms have the same meaning: The viewer can open a Microsoft Project File.
