File Spy is a handy application that works as a file viewer and file info inspector. Therefore, with this tool you can view the content of various types of files and examine their metadata details, together with other useful information.

The program is very easy to use. It provides you with a simple interface onto which you need to drag the file you want to inspect. As soon as you drop the file, a second window opens up, allowing you to preview the imported file – namely, the tool plays back popular audio and video file formats and displays the content of most common image, document, and web file types. In addition, both general and specific file-related information is displayed on the left-hand side of the window. The information is quite comprehensive – still, the complexity and the amount of detail provided vary according to the format of your file. What is more, the program has the ability to display text, hexadecimal, and icon views of any file.

The wide range of file formats supported makes File Spy a valuable program. You can rely on this tool whenever you are in need of detailed information about specific files. However, you can't import multiple files and examine them all at the same time in separate windows.
