Opening AXD files

Did your computer fail to open an AXD file? We explain what AXD files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your AXD files.

What is an AXD file?

Files that contain the .axd file extension are most commonly associated with ASP.NET software applications. The AXD files are used by various ASP.NET applications to handle embedded resource requests.

The AXD files are trace handler files that provide instructions to the associated application for the retrieval of embedded resources such as JavaScript files, CSS files and images. They are commonly used to manage website administration requests. These handlers can be built into an application or custom created for a user.

The Avery Labeler Pro software application also uses the .axd file suffix. These AXD files contain re-index files that are used by the Avery Labeler Pro application.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
