How do I open a DLL file?

Answer: A DLL (dynamic link library) file is a file used by a specific application to communicate with devices inside or attached to the computer. DLL files aren't meant to be opened separately from the program they belong to. When you load the program the DLL file belongs to, that program will automatically load the DLL file if it needs it.
