what is a .mw file?

The MW file extension is used for a Maple Worksheet created by Maplesoft . Maple worksheet is a computer program that uses symbolic mathematics (computer algebra system). The main function of the computer algebra system is expressing mathematics into symbolic forms. It is basically a file that allows users to find solutions to a mathematical problem in different fields like engineering, science and mathematics. Each Maple users are provident access to a variety of interfaces like Maplesoft graphing calculator, custom built Maplet applications, classic worksheet, standard worksheet and command-line version. Maple worksheets when opened by users are directed by default to the Standard Worksheet which includes the full feature interface. Certain platforms with less memory available can be viewed using the Classic Worksheet or the basic worksheet (older computers). In other operating systems like Windows, users are given the option to change the worksheet file association through the use of the file association selector from the tools folder of the Maple Start Menu.

a word of warning

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