.clx File Extension

Developer: Adobe Systems
File type: Standard Dictionary File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .clx. Files with the file extension .clx can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .clx files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .clx file?

Files in the CLX format are called standard dictionary files, and these are appended with the .clx extension. Also generally classified as data files, a CLX file is integrated with support for different languages. These CLX dictionary files are usually implemented into applications with grammar and spell checking features. Other programs integrated with thesaurus-related functionalities may also use these CLX files. The data stored in these CLX files includes lists of words and definitions, and this data is referenced by the associated application when a user accesses the grammar and spell checking features or the thesaurus-related functions of the software. Third party applications can be installed in Microsoft Windows-based systems and in Mac platforms to provide support for these CLX files. The Adobe Illustrator CS6 software and the Adobe Acrobat X application are examples of programs with versions for Microsoft Windows and Mac that use the data stored in these CLX files.

how to open a .clx file?

Launch a .clx 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 .clx 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 .clx files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .clx file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .clx file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .clx 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, .clx. 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.
