I'm trying to read a file in Python, and I'm encountering a "UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte" error. How can I resolve this and successfully read the file?

The "UnicodeDecodeError" often occurs when reading a file with the wrong encoding. Specify the correct encoding when opening the file using open('myfile.txt', 'r', encoding='utf-8'). Adjust the encoding parameter according to the file's actual encoding.
