    If you have HEIC image files or H.265 videos, you can use this guide to view them on Windows 10.
    High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) is an image and video file container that uses codecs like the High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) to significantly improve file compression, while still providing better image quality and additional benefits over older formats, such as JPEG, PNG, and GIF.
    If you've never heard of this format, you're forgiven, because it's not until Apple started using HEIF to save photos on its products that the format began to gain popularity. (Google also supports HEIF since the release of Android P.)
    Originally, Windows 10 didn't include native support for HEIF, but starting with the April 2018 Update, you can now open photos and videos wrapped in this file container. However, it's not a feature that comes enabled by default. Instead, you need to download and install two extensions to open HEIC images and videos encoded using HEVC (also known as H.265 and MPEG-H Part 2).
