[No Ads]Free HEIC Viewer: How to Open, Print HEIC and Convert HEIC to JPEG on Windows 10

HEIC is a relatively new compressed image format developed by Apple in 2017. It is short of High-Efficiency Image Coding and believed to be twice smaller than JPG but of the same quality. However, I have great trouble with HEIC files. Seriously, we need a good free HEIC viewer for our Windows PCs.

If we look for a free HEIC viewer in Microsoft Store, I have problems too. Firstly, it comes with ads as shown below.
