Program executable file type icon Program executable file type

The XLNK file extension is associated with the XML Link file format. A XML Link File (.XLNK) is an open and platform independant shortcut file that references a file or a directory. It has the same function as the Microsoft Shortcut File (.LNK) but is not limited to the Windows platform. And, unlike the LNK format, the format of the XLNK file is publicly documented.

Help how to open:

Use NanoXML/Lite to edit .xlnk XML link files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .xlnk file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
