Five Steps to Open AWW Files

If you have AWW files that you need to open, but you’re not sure how, follow these steps.


Step 1: Double-click the file.

Locate the AWW file icon and double-click it. If you have the right program installed, it should open the file automatically. If it doesn’t, move on to Step 2.

Step 2: Look for another program.

If the AWW file doesn’t open when you double-click it, you probably don’t have the right program on your computer. There are several popular programs that can be used to open a AWW file. Try one of the most common programs: Ability Office Write Document or AWW WML Website Administrator Configuration File.

Step 3: Check the file type.

If none of the above programs will open your AWW file, check the file type to make sure you have a program that can open that type of file. Most AWW files are Text Files, but there’s a chance it might be another type.

You can find this information in the file’s properties. On a Windows computer, just right-click the file and click properties, and look for the file type under “Type of File.” On a Mac computer, right-click the file and click “More info,” and look for the file type under “Kind.”

Step 4: Get help from a developer.

If you can’t figure out how to open a AWW file, a developer can probably tell you how. Find the program you have in the table below and contact the developer of that program.

Program Name Developer Name
Ability Office Write Document Ability Software
AWW WML Website Administrator Configuration File Microsoft Programmer

Step 5: Find a universal file viewer.

The easiest way to open a AWW file, or any kind of file, is to use a universal file viewer like File Magic (Download). You can use it to open many different file formats. If it’s not compatible, the file will just open in binary.
