Opening PSW files

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

What is a PSW file?

Files that contain the .psw file extension are commonly associated with the Pocket Word portable word processing application. When a user creates a text document when using the Pocket Word word processing application, the resulting document file is saved with the .psw file extension.

Pocket Word was created for Windows Mobile Pocket PC devices. The Pocket Word file format allows users to create, format and edit word processing documents on the go using a mobile device running on the Windows platform.

Documents that have been created with Pocket Word can be exported into the DOC file format for use with the Microsoft Word word processing application.

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.
