File extension .COMMAND
|Apple Mac OS X Terminal Format
The .COMMAND file extension is used by macOS operating systems, such as Mac OS, Mac OS X, and macOS, to identify text files that are executable in the Unix-based Terminal application. These files are written using the AppleScript programming language and contain instructions to launch an application or perform a certain task.
Typically, .COMMAND files are created automatically by the installation or setup apps used to install applications on macOS. These files contain the commands that should be issued at completion of the software setup process or upgrade. Once installed on a computer, users can open .COMMAND files directly from the Finder or use the command-line interface in the Terminal application.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .COMMAND) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .COMMAND extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .COMMAND file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .COMMAND extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .COMMAND extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .COMMAND file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .COMMAND file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .COMMAND file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .COMMAND file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .COMMAND file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
