.xy File Extension

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

what is a .xy file?

Document output files in the .xy extension are used by XYWrite, a word processing application developed by XYQuest for earlier versions of the Microsoft Windows OS. Users of the XYWrite program can create XY files using this software, and the content of these .xy files consists of text and other digital objects frequently used in presentations and groupware document collaboration projects. Users can implement text formatting and layout attributes into the text they saved in their XY files through the many document editing features provided by the XYWrite program. Digital objects like images can also be embedded into an XY word document. Files stored using the .xy extension may also contain content delimited with >> and << characters, and users of Microsoft Windows-based computers can use Microsoft Notepad and Microsoft WordPad to open and view the content of a document saved in the .xy format. These XY documents can also be opened and viewed by the Corel WordPerfect Office X6 application. XYQuest has discontinued further development and support for the XYWrite word processing software as of this writing.

how to open a .xy file?

Launch a .xy 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 .xy 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 .xy files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .xy file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .xy file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

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