.xlw File Extension

Developer: Microsoft
File type: Excel Workspace File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .xlw. Files with the file extension .xlw can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .xlw files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .xlw file?

The .xlw file extension is attached to files called workspace files saved using Microsoft Excel, a popular spreadsheet application. .xlw files are files containing screen locations of numerous workbooks, and workbook file references. Opening .xlw files allows the application to restore them back to the location they were saved to on the screen. When a user is simultaneously working on numerous workbooks, .xlw files play a big part in restoring layouts. .xlw files should not be misunderstood as files that contain workbook data because they only refer to workbook layouts on the screen. These files are mostly used by Microsoft Excel 2010 and 2011 and in order to properly reopen these files, users must have all workbook files. However, in order to open these .xlw files, users must install a variety of applications in their computer such as Excel 2010 and 2011, Microsoft Office Mobile , Microsoft Office XP, Microsoft Application Virtualization and even Microsoft Excel 2000 and 2003.

how to open a .xlw file?

Launch a .xlw file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .xlw file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .xlw files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .xlw file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .xlw file will open the correct application.

Microsoft Office is an office suite of desktop applications, servers and services, released by Microsoft on August 1, 1989 for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

Microsoft also positions Office as a development platform for line-of-business software under the Office Business Applications brand. The current versions are Office 2010 for Windows, released on June 15, 2010; and Office 2011 for Mac OS X, released October 26, 2010.The new Office 2013 (version 15 of the Office suite) is reported to be released around December 2012.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .xlw 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, .xlw. 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.
