3.100 FAQ-630 How to open FDF files in Windows Explorer?

Last Update: 7/21/2018

If you have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, Origin function definition files (.FDF) may display with an Adobe Acrobat Reader icon next to them. If you double-click on the file, Acrobat Reader attempts to open the file and fails. In order to open the file in a text editor, you can right-click on the file, select Open With from the shortcut menu. You can select Notepad or any other text editor from the associated dialog box.

Note: There is also a check box in this dialog box which allows you to always open files of this type using the specified application.
