An image file used in the Compact Disc plus Graphics (CDG) format contains an unprocessed, unconverted image, most often in low resolution. Used in conjunction with an audio file to store a song track on a CD. Viewing and processing of a raster image in CDG format is possible with the help of the VideoLAN VLC media player program, some of which are less well-known.
Files with the CDG extension usually contain music graphics, lyrics and sync data stored in the CD + G (Compact Disc plus Graphics) format, which is mainly used by karaoke discs. The graphics and lyrics on these karaoke discs are stored in an unused track sub-channel on the disc.
To open the file, you will need to install the VLC software. If the software is not installed, then Windows will certainly ask you how you want to open this file or inform that you need to install the appropriate software. Almost identical information will be for Mac / iPhone / Android users.
Once the required program is installed, the file can be opened quickly and easily. I would like to remind you that it is best and safer to download software from the official website of its manufacturer. In this case, you will be able not only to avoid possible infection of your gadget with viruses, but also to get the highest quality product.
If you are trying to open a CDG file, try right-clicking on it or long-pressing it. Next, you choose «Open with». And after that, choose the appropriate software.
You can also open the CDG file directly in your browser. Just drag this file to your browser window.

If your antivirus software does not cope with this, then it is better to get rid of such a file.
