.mwp File Extension

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

what is a .mwp file?

The MWP file extension is used for a Lotus Word Pro SmartMaster File created by IBM. It is usually a template that is preformatted for use in IBM OS/2 warp and Microsoft Windows compatible computers. MWP files are identified also with .LWP Documents and vice versa. IBM’s Lotus Software group is the developer of Lotus Word Pro, word processor software that is part of the Lotus SmartSuite Office suite. Lotus Word Pro was originally based on Ami Pro, word processing program released by Samna (Computer Software Company based in Atlanta, Georgia). Samna Word is considered as an innovation in the field of word processors and a rival in the DOS market. It had many attributes but was discouraged by other users due to issues about speed and a print preview that can not be edited. The Samna Word advantage is that it shows format and font which is a first in WYSIWYG word processor. Lotus Software Group was able to obtain Samna in 1990 and eventually was changed to Ami Pro which was again changed by IBM to Lotus Word Pro.

a word of warning

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