Opening FTW files

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

What is a FTW file?

The .ftw file extension is most commonly used by the Family tree Maker genealogy software application. Family tree Maker allows users to build and share family trees. The FTW files store the family tree data as well as the user settings and other project information.

The .ftw file extension is also used for FontTwister files and FormTool Pro form files.

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.
