.tol File Extension

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

what is a .tol file?

An AOL tool file is used by certain applications deployed by America Online (AOL) for providing users with their services and programs. The content of these AOL tool files may include source code required by some programs integrated into larger AOL Web applications. Data needed by other AOL Web applets may also be stored in these AOL tool files, and these pieces of data are required to be referenced by these programs in order to provide users with the set of integrated features available in the associated AOL Web apps. These AOL tool files are implemented with data compilation specifications proprietary to AOL for their applets and full featured programs. These AOL tool files are also integrated with custom encoding standards used by AOL to store these AOL tool files in the TOL file format. These AOL tool files are affixed with the .tol extension, and AOL does not recommend users to open and edit the content stored in these AOL tool files. This is because AOL applets and programs may encounter errors or bugs when a user accesses a certain set of features available in the program that corresponds to the content of the TOL file that has been modified by the user.

how to open a .tol file?

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

a word of warning

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