.src file extension...

Are you sure there is no typo ? I am not able to find information on the .src file extension. It does not seem to exist.

Do you know what is in the file ? Where/how did you get those files ? Maybe you can try renaming the files with a suitable extension. Please also provide the actual name of a file - maybe that will provide a clue. The examples you have provided (if they are actual names) point to picture files, so try changing the extensions to picture formats, e.g. .bmp, .jpeg, etc. or maybe movie files - .mov, .avi, etc.

That the files you are talking about are probably scr files and are screensaver files,they will be opened through Control Panel/Display.

Otherwise, like Papa Echo says, it looks like you have the wrong type of file, before you open them, run a virus scan on them just in case. It may be that they will open by re-naming the extension, but DO THAT SCAN first.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
