Two file types are recorded to be associated with the .pip file extension. A brief description for these two file types is provided.

File Type #1 ? Office Personalized Settings File

The file type .pip is primarily recorded to be associated with Microsoft Office programs. The .pip files are preference files that contain ?Personalized Menus and Toolbars? settings of Microsoft programs, such as Word or Excel.

A Microsoft program studies what menu commands are most often used by the user. It then creates .pip files to allow the display of only commonly used commands in a shortened version of each menu.

The .pip files come under the category of settings files.

.pip files are named as <name of the associated program>.pip. For instance, the .pip file associated with Microsoft Word is named Word.pip.

The .pip files are located in C:\Users\AppData\Microsoft\Office folder.
