How Do I Open a Saved Figma File?

Opening a saved Figma file is easy and straightforward. The first step is to open the Figma app on your device, which can be done on both desktop and mobile. Once you’ve opened the program, you’ll need to locate the file that you want to open.

On desktop devices, select ‘Open File’ from the options in the top left-hand corner of the screen. On mobile devices, tap ‘Open File’ from the bottom menu bar. You can also access recently opened files by clicking ‘Recently Opened Files’ in the same menu.

Once you have located your desired file, click or tap on it to open it. If it is a project that has been shared with you, click or tap ‘Accept Invite’ before opening it.

If you wish to open a copy of an existing Figma file that someone else has created or accessed before, go to ‘File > Duplicate File…’ and select whether you would like to duplicate it as an individual file or as part of a team project.
