.ACL File Extension

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

what is a .ACL file?

The ACL format is implemented for files defined as auto correct list files used in the Microsoft office suite. These files hold the AutoCorrect List produced by the AutoCorrect functionality that is built into the Microsoft Office production suite. This utility applet is implemented to routinely integrate all grammar corrections and spell errors that have been patterned by the program based on a pre-constructed algorithm applied by its default language functionality. The attributes maintained by ACL files can only be customized within the Microsoft Office program itself and not through manual revisions with the use of other applications. This means the content of these ACL files can only be modified, or new content can only be added to these ACL files, through the Microsoft Office program that created it. A universal ACL file is also usually linked to a distinct foreign language prefered by the user.

how to open a .ACL file?

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

Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office is an office suite of desktop applications, servers and services, released by Microsoft on August 1, 1989 for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Originally, the first version of Microsoft Office contained Microsoft Word, a word processor and was previously considered the main program in Office; Microsoft Excel, a spreadsheet program that originally competed with the dominant Lotus 1-2-3; and Microsoft PowerPoint, a popular presentation program for Windows and Mac.; a marketing term for a bundled set of applications. As years passed by, Office applications have grown significantly closer with shared features such as a common spell checker, Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) data integration and Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications scripting language. Microsoft also positions Office as a development platform for line-of-business software under the Office Business Applications brand. The current versions are Office 2010 for Windows, released on June 15, 2010; and Office 2011 for Mac OS X, released October 26, 2010.The new Office 2013 (version 15 of the Office suite) is reported to be released around December 2012.

a word of warning

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