How to Open DEF Files Quickly & Easily

Need to open DEF files but don't have Unknown Apple II File, ADS Source Code, or Geoworks Assembly Header File?

Your computer uses file associations to determine which software is used to open and view a specific file. Although many software packages share certain file types, some file types must be opened in binary format. Binary format is a fancy way of saying that it has to be opened in the program in which it was created. In a nutshell, either you're missing the correct software, or your file associations are wrong.

Here's how to open your DEF file quickly and easily...
