Is it possible to open .ECW files with QGIS 3.2?

I have read Opening ECW files in QGIS?, but that applies to QGIS 2.14.3.

Is it possible in QGIS 3.2 without downloading anything as we cannot install anything at work or access the program files?

    It depends on your operating system, which you have not mentioned (yet). – AndreJ Sep 17 '18 at 7:00

You can open ECW files with QGIS 3.2 . If you are not sure, you could install QGIS 3.2 in a different folder and test it out.

Yes. ECW is supported out of box for all Windows installs.
