Here is a list of best free VCF viewer software for Windows. VCF or vCard files usually contain phone contacts with personal details. VCF files are mainly used in phones to store contacts. You can export all your contacts as a VCF file and view it in PC. However, you need some special software known as VCF viewer or vCard Viewers to view VCF files. In some VCF viewers, you can also edit contacts and save it in some other file formats.

Information like Name, Phone Number, Email, Contact Photo, Address, etc. can be viewed by these viewers. Plus, just like a phone, you can quickly search a contact by its name.

To view VCF files, launch this software and add a VCF file by pressing the Open button. All the contacts with their details will add to the Properties Section of this software.

Instead, you get a list of attributes stored in a contact like Name, Email, Telephone Number, etc. By selecting any one attribute, you can view all information stored in that attribute. Because of this, it is not an ideal software to find and view information of particular contact. However, editing is simple as you just need to select an attribute and then simply replace the information of the attribute with the new one. Now, press the Save button to save the new information in the VCF file.

This software shows all contacts, but it shows contacts in an unstructured way as the information of all contacts are shown in the form of a big list. To separate information of one contact from another contact, you have to focus on BEGIN: VCARD and END: VCARD comments. There is also some advantage of this VCF file viewer like the presence of various file viewing tools and its ability to jump between VCF files of the same folder. In terms of tools, you get a Find next tool (to find a contact), Zoom in/out tools, Copy Contacts, Rename Tool (to rename the VCF), and more.

VCF Viewer is a free and portable VCF viewer software for Windows. It is a very basic VCF viewer that comes with an outdated interface. Still, it fulfills its main purpose, that is to show all contacts of a VCF file. In it, you can open a VCF file of any size without much problem. As soon as you open a VCF file, you can view a list of all the contacts with only two basic information namely, Name and Phone Number. A search bar to search any contact by their names is present on the top.

Windows Command Prompt is another way to view contacts present in a VCF file. Plus, it also eliminates the need for an external VCF or vCard Viewer. However, it also has its set of limitation like lack of user interface, use of commands, copying and pasting the path of VCF file, etc. Plus, I also don’t like the continuous list of joined contacts which makes it very hard to separate one contact from another one. Still, you can focus on the BEGIN:VCARD and END:VCARD comments to separate one contact from adjacent contacts.
How to view VCF files using Windows Command Prompt:
- The first step is to open the Command Prompt and then enter ‘type‘ command and then put a space.
- After that, copy the patch of the VCF file that you want to view.
- Now, add a double quote after space and paste the path of VCF file. Then, put closing double quote after the path and lastly, press Enter to view contacts with all contained information.
The whole command would look similar to this:
