(Program Information File) In earlier Windows versions (3.x and NT), a PIF file stored custom display settings (window size, fonts, etc.) for a DOS application. The DOS app could be launched by clicking its PIF file, and the PIFEDIT.EXE utility was used to create them.

Starting with Windows 9x and 2000, PIF was replaced by Properties. Viewing and editing settings for a DOS application works the same as a Windows resource by right clicking the icon and selecting Properties.
