.xfdf File Extension

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

what is a .xfdf file?

The .xfdf file extension is associated with Adobe Acrobat. The files containing this extension mean they are in the XML Forms Data Format which is commonly the format that the Adobe Acrobat uses. The .xfdf files used by this PDF application contains a description of the elements and values of the page forms such as name and value text fields and other data that allow these files to save information into a PDF document. Since Adobe Acrobat is popular software working with PDF files and formats especially when trying to open and edit PDF documents, the fact that these .xfdf files contain all necessary data that supports PDF documents proves that they are indeed important to make this application function better. Other Adobe applications such as Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Adobe Acrobat X, and other versions of Adobe Acrobat can be used to open these files. .xfdf files use XML formatting but they are also a bit similar with .FDF files.

how to open a .xfdf file?

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

Adobe Acrobat x

Adobe Acrobat x

Adobe Acrobat X is a PDF management software, which is a set of various applications for the use of Portable Document Format or PDF files. It allows a user to not just view PDF files but also create from scratch or through a template available on the program, manage, print, and share. The 10th version of Acrobat, which is called Adobe Acrobat X, was first introduced in the year 2010 on November 15. It has new cool features like “sandboxing” protection to secure PDF files for the later versions of Windows OS computers, particularly Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. This version of Acrobat X is also made compatible with Mac OS, iOS and Android, but not with Linux. The newest version of Acrobat X is Adobe Acrobat XI, which is the 11th version, that was recently announced last October 1, 2012 and expected to be commercially available on October 15, 2012. It is packed with a graphical user interface that is originated from the 10th version for all desktop systems. However, it has new cool features such as the ability to export PDF files to Microsoft PowerPoint presentation file, integration of cloud services, and touch friendly capabilities for compact mobile devices.

a word of warning

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