.cwk File Extension

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

what is a .cwk file?

ClarisWorks document files are classified as data output files of the applications included in the ClarisWorks software suite. These output documents are stored in the CWK format, and files saved in this format are appended with the .cwk extension. Tools bundled with the AppleWorks software suite also use these CWK files as document output files. Apple developed these software suites and the CWK format to provide users with a useful set of word processing features for creating document presentations embedded with a wide variety of multimedia objects. ClarisWorks developed the ClarisWorks suite of productivity tools, which was later changed to AppleWorks by Apple after they acquired ClarisWorks in 1998. The content of these CWK files may include blocks of text, charts, tables, digital images, diagrams, spreadsheet data and page layout elements. These multimedia objects are entered by an author of a CWK file and may be opened and edited by others using tools included in the AppleWorks suite.

how to open a .cwk file?

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

Apple ClarisWorks

Apple ClarisWorks

Apple ClarisWorks is a former name of what is now called AppleWorks, which was a computer software developer created in the year 1987 by Apple Computer, or popularly known as Apple Inc. (the new name of the company). It used to have its own copyrights and source code to some programs like MacPaint and MacWrite so it can be separated and differentiated from between some software activities and hardware or OS activities. After 3 years, ClarisWorks became an owned subsidiary, and bought an integrated application. Another year after, the name ClarisWorks was official from its original name Claris, but it took 11 years before it was rebranded to AppleWorks for Mac computers. Prior to that, this software developer came out with upgrades to give a modern and user-friendly interface, which was evident on MacWrite Pro, MacDraw Pro and FileMaker Pro. The downside is that it lacks some features when compared to Microsoft suite.

a word of warning

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