How to open MOL files

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

What is a MOL file?

MOL files are MOdule (play)List files, which you can read more about below.

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