.as File Extension

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

what is a .as file?

Many text editing applications can be used to create and open files with the .as extension. These include the Microsoft Notepad software (bundled with most Microsoft Windows-based systems) and the Apple TextEdit application for Mac-based platforms, and there are also a number of Adobe products that can be used to open and access the data stored in these .as files, like the Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 program. This software can be installed in computers running on Mac and Microsoft Windows-based environments, because Adobe Systems provides two versions of this application, one for each system type. The data stored in a file with the .as extension is a set of scripting source codes, and these are created using ActionScript. These source codes may be functions, variable instructions and code to reference data stored in other associated files, so the corresponding script, most of which are interactive Flash software, can perform the functions accessed by users. Most of these AS files are associated to files with the .fla extension, which are Flash movies. Macromedia developed these AS files and the ActionScript programming language, and Macromedia is now owned by Adobe Systems.

how to open a .as file?

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

Microsoft Notepad

Microsoft Notepad

Notepad is a basic text editor used to create plain documents. It is commonly used to view or edit text (.txt) files, and a simple tool for creating Web pages, and supports only the basic formatting in HTML documents. It also has a simple built-in logging function. Each time a file that initializes with .log is opened, the program inserts a text timestamp on the last line of the file. It accepts text from the Windows clipboard. This is helpful in stripping embedded font type and style codes from formatted text, such as when copying text from a Web page and pasting into an email message or other “What You See Is What You Get” text editor. The formatted text is temporarily pasted into Notepad, and then immediately copied again in stripped format to be pasted into the other program. Simple text editors like Notepad may be utilized to change text with markup, such as HTML. Early versions of Notepad offered only the most basic functions, such as finding text. Newer versions of Windows include an updated version of Notepad with a search and replace function (Ctrl + H), as well as Ctrl + F for search and similar keyboard shortcuts. It makes use of a built-in window class named edit. In older versions such as Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me and Windows 3.1, there is a 64k limit on the size of the file being edited, an operating system limit of the EDIT class.

a word of warning

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