OR3 Editor

OR3 Editor

The OR3 file editor is an alternative means of opening OR3 files. OR3 files are files mainly associated and created using the Lotus Organizer 97 software, developed by IBM and used to organize personal information, task lists, events, etc. OR3 files can contain whatever data as long as they are created using the Lotus Org 97 but when it comes to opening these files, a system may require Lotus applications to do so such as the Lotus software that created it, Lotus SmartSuite, etc. If the system does not have these Lotus applications installed, it would be impossible to open OR3 files unless users use the OR3 editor. OR3 editors come in a variety of names such as EditPlus, WavePad, etc. An OR3 editor contains features needed to edit OR3 files quickly and easily into a format that can be opened even without the Lotus Organizer installed. An OR3 editor also comes with a separate editor for Windows, for MAC, for Androids and for iphones, etc.

a word of warning

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