What is a .SXW file?

The file extension .SXW refers to a document created by StarOffice Writer, which is a word processing program. This type of document was specifically designed for use with the StarOffice suite, a collection of office-related applications. The .SXW file format is structured using the OpenDocument XML format, making it a versatile and open standard for office documents.

Although originally developed for StarOffice, .SXW files can also be opened and edited with several other programs due to their compatibility with the OpenDocument format. The primary software that can manage .SXW files includes: 1. **Apache OpenOffice Writer** - This is the direct successor to StarOffice Writer and can easily handle .SXW files. 2. **LibreOffice Writer** - Similar to OpenOffice, LibreOffice Writer supports .SXW files and offers a range of tools for editing and managing documents. 3. **Planamesa NeoOffice** - This is another alternative that can open and edit .SXW files, specifically designed for Mac users.

These programs allow you to view, edit, and save documents in the .SXW format, ensuring that you can continue to use your files even if you no longer have access to the original StarOffice software.
