what is a .odt file?

The ODT extension is used by files created and saved using the OpenOffice word processing software, also known as StarOffice. This software is from Sun Microsystems, Inc, and the .odt format is similar to other text document formats. In more technical terms, XML content contained within a ZIP wrapper is what comprises an ODT file. These files may contain text and images, while tables as well as various digital objects generally used for various document templates can also be inserted or embedded into documents saved in the .odt format. Users can use OpenOffice to add styles and formatting preferences to ODT files. Certain third party applications may be used to convert these files to .doc and .docx formats, so it can be viewable and editable in more popular word processing applications like Microsoft Word 2010 or earlier versions. Mime types supported by ODT files include application/x-vnd.oasis.opendocument.text and application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text. PK ASCII support is also integrated into an ODT file.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .odt files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .odt. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
