Solution 1 :
.so files are files, that aren’t meant to be read by humans. These are libraries (like .dll files on windows), that provide functions for other programs to use.
If you want a human readable representation (of the compiled code at least) try a disassembler like radare2 or ghidra.
im trying to open a file with the extension .so. In notepad++ i can see some letters and numbers, however the most character appear this way:
€TàÅà€˜à ©à€˜â ©â ”à¥à Uá T ! !`Vâ @ áP áïÿÿ€à å¡àö†çë åñ†çë Xà0Éà p—âp `wâ P ã@ á "à påâ#à à¡àÐâð½è Sá RøO-é ` áp á9 Š SãOoOo @„ Qão [email protected]à á á áÐ†çëP á
Someone can help me?

It’s a binary file that you can’t open (at least not in a meaningful way). Since it is a library file you need to get access to the source code it was built from

Question: what are you trying to achieve by opening it?
