File Format Description

Generic executable script created or used by a number of possible programs; when opened, the script typically runs a series of commands in the order they are listed.

Since script files are saved in a text format, they can often be edited in a basic text editor.

The .SCR extension can be given to .EXE files to detour any restrictions placed on EXE files by antivirus programs or malware.
