What Are Exe Files?

Before moving on, let’s understand what exe files are. Exe files are basically executable files based on DOS and Windows, therefore support only Windows based applications and software. Thus, you won’t be able to run it on any other platform.

On the other hand, Android supports apk files. APK stands for the Android application package. This type of file format is used to distribute and install an application and various kind of software in the Android operating system.

The Apk and exe files cannot be interchanged i.e you woud not be able to run apk on Windows pc and exe on android. Therefore, it is necessary to convert the files first to use it on other devices based on different platforms.

They may have some malware or virus which can harm your computer or it can become a threat to the security of your files.  So, please do not fall into the trap. Changing my software is safe to use and it actually works.
