.stw File Extension

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

what is a .stw file?

Files in the .stw format are text documents that can be created and used with the StarOffice application as document templates. This software preceded OpenOffice.Org, which now uses the ODT data storage format to save the content of documents created with the OpenOffice.Org word processing application. StarOffice is used to create text documents that are by default saved in the SDW format, and files with the .stw extension can be used to apply the same page layout and formatting attributes found in the template unto the SDW word documents. Version 1 of OpenOffice.Org originally used the SDW and STW formats for saving word documents and templates, respectively, and recent OpenOffice.Org versions now use ODT and OTT formats, starting with version 2 of OpenOffice.Org. Oracle developed the STW format for StarOffice, while there are versions of OpenOffice.Org and Apache Open Office that can be used to open, view and edit the content of SDW and STW files in Microsoft Windows or Mac platforms.

how to open a .stw file?

Launch a .stw 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 .stw file will open it.

a word of warning

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