.VIM File Extension

There is only one file type that uses the .VIM extension:

Vim Settings File

Vim Settings File

Settings file used by Vim, a text editing program often used by source code developers; commonly used to save settings, such as syntax highlighting rules, for the text editor when it is opened; can be referenced within the .VIMRC settings file.

NOTE: The ".vim" name is also used for a hidden directory used by Vim, but this is not the same as the VIM file type.
