I am having a problem opening my tax return after I download it. Which app do I use to open it?

the tax file should have a ".pdf" extension on it.  If it has ".txt"  then edit the name and change it to ".pdf" and open it with a PDF viewer.  (or download the PDF file with a different browser...some "Edge"-browser downloads put the wrong file extension on the file)

 IF the file has the extension ".tax2018" then you must have the desktop software installed to see what is in it.
