How to open DFW files

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

What is a DFW file?

DFW files are Derive worksheet files, which you can read more about below.

The DFW file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a DFW opener may not be able to open all kinds of DFW files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
