Opening AZW files

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

What is an AZW file?

Files with the .azw extension are most commonly associated with the Amazon Kindle digital reading device. Amazon Kindle allows users to download eBooks from the Amazon Marketplace and read them on the portable Kindle reader. The AZW files contain books that have been formatted for use with the Kindle. Users can download the eBooks directly to their Kindle via a wireless connection or they can transfer files from their PC to their Kindle using a USB connection. iPhone users can also read AZW files on their iPhones by downloading the Kindle software to their iPhone device.
