.azw1 File Extension

Developer: Amazon
File type: Amazon Topaz eBook
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .azw1. Files with the file extension .azw1 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .azw1 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .azw1 file?

Data files are not only used by applications, but also by the OS and firmware of external devices that can be connected to a computer running on a supported OS, or digital gadgets with associated software that can be installed and used in these supported systems. Amazon Kindle book reader devices and the Amazon Kindle Reader software use files appended with the .apw1 extension. Also known as Amazon Topaz ebook files, these AZW1 files are used to organize and manage downloaded parts of segments of Amazon Kindle ebook files from the 3G Whispernet network of Amazon. The Amazon Kindle software can be installed in a Microsoft Windows-based system to implement support for these AZW1 files and the associated features integrated into the application, while there are also versions of this program for Mac environments. These applications can be used to start downloading and viewing the content of these Amazon Kindle books. Since the Amazon Kindle application provides support for AZW1 files and can also be installed in these two most widely used systems, users can easily create and properly share Kindle books.

how to open a .azw1 file?

Launch a .azw1 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 .azw1 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 .azw1 files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .azw1 file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .azw1 file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .azw1 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, .azw1. 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.
