How do I view a .prn file? Better yet, how do I convert it into something useful, such as jpg? Win98.
Thank you!

You cannot view a prn file, it holds the printer data that results when you "Print to a file".
This exists in a language that only a printer understands and you can only send this to a printer for printing.

See this

There is a small error in step 10.
It should advise the reader to highlight [select] the "Print" action and click "Set as Default".
