.asm File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Assembly Language Source Code File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .asm. Files with the file extension .asm can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .asm files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .asm file?

Data with assembly language code may be saved in the ASM format, and this data can be accessed for editing purposes by using many text editing applications like the Microsoft Notepad software and the Microsoft WordPad application among others. There are also text editing programs for Mac-based systems which can be used to open and view the content stored in these ASM files. Considered as a low level scripting language, assembly language is mostly used to generate code for hardware-related processes and functionalities, a simple example of which is the function of a CD/DVD open/close tray button, and an example of a complex assembly language application is software used to operate the mechanical functions of an electronic printing machine. These ASM files can be initialized and ran using assembler applications, which may include .asm, HLA and .asm among others. Files appended with the .asm extension are also classified as developer files because the data stored in these ASM files are referenced by applications programmed with these assembler language source code files.

how to open a .asm file?

Launch a .asm file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .asm file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .asm files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .asm file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .asm file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .asm file

Microsoft Notepad

Microsoft Notepad

Notepad is a basic text editor used to create plain documents. It is commonly used to view or edit text (.txt) files, and a simple tool for creating Web pages, and supports only the basic formatting in HTML documents. It also has a simple built-in logging function. Each time a file that initializes with .log is opened, the program inserts a text timestamp on the last line of the file. It accepts text from the Windows clipboard. This is helpful in stripping embedded font type and style codes from formatted text, such as when copying text from a Web page and pasting into an email message or other “What You See Is What You Get” text editor. The formatted text is temporarily pasted into Notepad, and then immediately copied again in stripped format to be pasted into the other program. Simple text editors like Notepad may be utilized to change text with markup, such as HTML. Early versions of Notepad offered only the most basic functions, such as finding text. Newer versions of Windows include an updated version of Notepad with a search and replace function (Ctrl + H), as well as Ctrl + F for search and similar keyboard shortcuts. It makes use of a built-in window class named edit. In older versions such as Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me and Windows 3.1, there is a 64k limit on the size of the file being edited, an operating system limit of the EDIT class.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .asm files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .asm. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
