A 386 file is a system file used by older Windows 3.x systems. It enables certain hardware components to run correctly. For example, the WINA20.386 file allowed Windows systems to 386 enhanced mode, which increased the computer's performance.

Device drivers designed for Windows 95 and later use a .VXD extension.
