Opening MXDL files

Have a problem opening a .MXDL file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what MXDL files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .MXDL file type?

The .mxdl filename extension is used in connection with Maxthon, a multi-platform cloud-oriented web browser, to distinguish incomplete downloads made with that browser. The .mxdl extension does not refer to any specific file type, as it is simply appended to the original filename to point out to the status of a file rather than its function.

The original file type of a Maxthon MXDL file can be told by the original extension, preceding .mxdl. Presence of an .mxdl file means that this file has not been completely downloaded yet, or the .mxdl extension has been left over due to a bug.

MXDL files are not meant to be opened, except with Maxthon to resume downloading.

Only if a file has in fact been fully downloaded, removal of the .mxdl extension might actually help open the file. With certain file types (such as AVI) partially downloaded files can be possibly opened, while other file types such as archives (esp. digitally signed) would be useless.
