.8xs File Extension

Developer: Texas Instruments
File type: TI-83/84 Plus String File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .8xs. Files with the file extension .8xs can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .8xs files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .8xs file?

The TI-83 product as well as the TI-84 Plus device are manufactured by Texas Instruments as calculators integrated with advanced mathematical and scientific graphing capabilities. These devices can be synched to Microsoft Windows-based systems and to Mac-based platforms, using the TI Connect application (also developed by Texas Instruments). This software uses files with the .8xs extension as reference data files. These 8XS files are also referred to as TI-83/84 Plus string files. Stored in these .8xs files are parameters and strings used for the mathematical calculating functions and scientific graphing features among the other computation-related functionalities integrated into these devices from Texas Instruments. The TI Connect program can be used to calibrate the settings of these features, and when users access the functionalities stored in these .8xs files, the application references the corresponding data by finding the associated 8XS file and loading just the required data unto itself and not the entire file, for faster performance from the TI Connect application.

how to open a .8xs file?

Launch a .8xs 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 .8xs 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 .8xs files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .8xs file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .8xs file will open the correct application.

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, .8xs. 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.
