(Program Information File) A data file in Windows 3.x and NT that stores window settings for DOS applications. It allows screen size, fonts and other options to be selected in order to customize the way the DOS app appears under Windows. DOS applications can be launched by clicking their PIF file, and the PIFEDIT.EXE utility is used to create and edit them.

In Windows 9x, 2000 and XP, PIF was replaced by the Properties attributes about the file. To view and edit settings for a DOS application, do the same thing that works for any Windows resource: right click the icon and select Properties.
