What is a .REDIR file?

The file extension ".REDIR" is associated with a specific type of file known as a Spotify Executable Redirect File. This file is part of the Spotify program, which is a popular service for streaming music over the internet. When you install Spotify on your computer, it saves some files in a specific folder, usually found at "C:\Program Files\Spotify\". Among these files, there is one named "spotify.exe.redir".

The main purpose of this file is to help Spotify run smoothly on your computer. However, it's important to note that not everyone needs to interact with this file directly. In fact, most Spotify users might not even know it exists.

If you're having trouble getting Spotify to work properly on your computer, some users have found that deleting the "spotify.exe.redir" file can help. After removing this file, you would then try to start Spotify again. This action can sometimes resolve issues preventing the program from running as it should.

To open or deal with a ".REDIR" file, you don't need any special program other than Spotify itself. Since it's a file specifically used by Spotify, the program knows how to handle it automatically. There's no need for any additional software to open or modify this file type.

In summary, the ".REDIR" file extension is used by Spotify for its internal operations, particularly to help the program run correctly on your computer. If you're experiencing issues with Spotify, removing the "spotify.exe.redir" file might help, but typically, you won't need to interact with this file at all. Spotify is the main program that uses and manages this file type.
