What is a SHW file?

Files that contain the .shw file extension are most commonly associated with the Corel Presentation software application. Corel Presentation is included in the WordPerfect Office suite of software programs. The SHW files contain presentation files that are similar in nature to the presentation files that are created with the Microsoft PowerPoint software.

The SHW files that are created with Corel Presentation can be exported as PowerPoint slideshows for users who do not have access to the Corel Presentations application itself.

The .shw file extension is also used by the Harvard Graphics application for presentation files and for PMView Slideshow files.
