Opening MXP files

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

What is a MXP file?

Files with the .mxp extension are most commonly associated with Adobe Creative Suite. The MXP files contain add-ons that are used to add features and functions to the software. They commonly contain new menus and toolbars that enhance the software features. These files can be managed using the program's extension manager.

The .mxp file extension is also used for ArcReader published map files and 3-matic project 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.
