Open JNT File

Files with a .JNT extension are associated with the Windows Journal application, which was a note-taking application developed by Microsoft for Windows. Windows Journal allowed users to create, edit and save notes using a stylus or a mouse. These notes were then saved in the .JNT file format. However, due to security concerns, Microsoft has ceased support for Windows Journal and the application was removed from later versions of the Windows operating system.

Opening and Using .JNT Files

If you are using an older version of Windows that still has the Windows Journal application, you can simply double-click on the JNT file to open it. However, if you are using a newer version of Windows without Windows Journal, you will need to use a different method.

One way is to use the Windows Journal application for Windows that Microsoft has made available for download. This is a version of Windows Journal that can be installed on newer versions of Windows.

Another method is to convert the JNT file to another format using a conversion tool such as Journal Note Writer. This tool can convert JNT files to a print-friendly format, which can then be opened using any application that can open that format.


JNT files can also be converted to PDF for easy viewing and sharing. This can be done using the "Print" function within Windows Journal, and selecting "Microsoft Print to PDF" as the printer. If you do not have Windows Journal, you can use the Journal Note Writer tool mentioned above to convert JNT files to a print-friendly format, and then use a third-party tool to convert that format to PDF.

JNT File Important Information

While JNT files were once a common way of taking and sharing notes on Windows, they have been largely replaced by other note-taking applications and formats due to the discontinuation of Windows Journal. However, if you still have JNT files that you need to access, there are still methods available to open and convert these files.

It's also important to be aware of the security risks associated with JNT files. Since Windows Journal has been discontinued due to security concerns, it's recommended to convert JNT files to a more secure format if you are going to be sharing them with others.
