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

what is a .wtr file?

Files with the .wtr extension are deemed as Encarta files usually used by the program called Encarta encyclopedia. This file extension was developed by Microsoft and .wtr files contain Encarta encyclopedia entries. Encarta is a very popular electronic encyclopedia and it does not only contain texts and definition of terms. It also contains music clips, illustrations, videos, timelines, photos and other tools that make the use of this encyclopedia convenient and user-friendly. These files can be viewed and accessed online and they can also come in CDs and DVDs. This Encarta encyclopedia is very helpful for users to understand some terms and do electronic research. These files cannot be opened manually but accessed with the use of the Encarta software. Other applications used to open these files are Winter Windows Scheduler, Farsite, and Microsoft Encarta as well as file converters and editors.

Microsoft Encarta

Microsoft Encarta is an encyclopedia-like software that is installed on a Windows-based machine. The software is jam-packed with information that is normally seen in a full volume of encyclopedia.

Microsoft Encarta also includes games to make learning more exciting and fun for its users. Software giant Microsoft made the Encarta very educational tool for students to use. It’s a virtual encyclopedia that can be referred to and called upon anytime and anywhere, whether online or offline. The software is regularly updated just like a real encyclopedia is.

a word of warning

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