.kwd File Extension

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

what is a .kwd file?

The KWD file extension is used for a KWord Document developed by KDE. KWord is a word processor and a complete desktop publishing program that belongs to the KOffice suite. It was created by Reginald Staudlbauer in 1998. It was based on ideas from FrameMaker, a document processor used for the manipulation and production of structured documents produced by Adobe Systems. Frames created by KWord allow users to place text anywhere on the page and each page created is considered a new frame. Texts created on a frame can easily be transferred to the next frame of KWORD. Its like writing words in a page and when that page is already full or there is no more space available for the next word then simply turning it to the next page gives the user a new page to work on. The use of frames itself dictates easy achievements for KWord. Additional features are ODT (Open Document Text) support, allows embedding of Documents and customization of user interface.

how to open a .kwd file?

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

KOffice KWord

KOffice KWord

KWord is a combination of a desktop publishing application as well as word processor which was developed by Reginald Stadlbauer as a part of the project known as KOffice back in 1998. The distribution of this was discontinued last September of 2012. KWord includes several features which can be found in almost all existing word processors. It has the capability of creating files in PDF format. It can also support for different email addresses as well as different hyperlinks. It contains several known features that can be used for accessibility purposes like having the Text-to-Speech option which can give its user the ability to speak either a part or the entire document itself while at the same time allowing its user to manipulate the document with the use of keyboard. It also provide support for different types of bookmarks specifically used for documents in order for its user to navigate the document in an easier manner.

a word of warning

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