What is a .BBS file?

The file extension .BBS stands for Bulletin Board System Text. This type of file contains text that is used and shown on an online bulletin board system, commonly known as a BBS. A BBS is a software system that allows users to connect and interact, often through messages or forums. The text in a .BBS file is usually straightforward and can be read just like any regular text file.

To access or open a .BBS file, you can use specific BBS server software designed for managing and operating a bulletin board system. This software allows the BBS to function and display the text stored in .BBS files to users who log in to the system.

Alternatively, if you just want to view the content of a .BBS file without connecting to a BBS, you can use any standard text editor, like Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on macOS. These text editors can open .BBS files because the files are essentially simple text files. This means you can read and edit the text just as you would with any other text document.
