.mws File Extension

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

what is a .mws file?

The MWS file extension is known as the Maple Classic Worksheet which was developed by Maplesoft. The Maple Classic Worksheet is a mathematics and modeling program. It includes text, math equations, graphs, charts, and other data saved in an interactive technical format. It is used by mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. The Classic Worksheet is available on 32-bit Windows and 32-bit Linux platforms. It possesses the traditional Maple worksheet look and uses less memory. The newer version is the Standard Worksheet which includes a full featured interface. To access the Classic Worksheet in Windows application, go to the Start Menu then “All Programs” click on “Maple” then Classic Worksheet Maple. Maple 9 and later saves worksheets in a new XML-based format with an .MW file extension. As of today, the classic worksheet is now a basic worksheet environment for older computers with limited memory since it didn’t upgrade to 64 bit. Files in MWS format can be opened with Maplesoft Maple in Mac platforms.

how to open a .mws file?

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

a word of warning

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