How to open DWS files

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

What is a DWS file?

DWS files are Dyalog APL WorkSpace files, which you can read more about below.

The DWS 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 DWS opener may not be able to open all kinds of DWS files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
