File Extension OSDX

.OSDX File

File extension: OSDX
File type: Search Connector

Notes about the OSDX file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The OSDX file type is primarily associated with 'Windows' by Microsoft Corporation.

Windows 7, along with desktop search, introduces Federated Search. With Federated Search you can create small files that allow you to search beyond your PC in Windows Explorer.

Federated Search is based on OpenSearch and the RSS format. These are open standards so it's fairly easy to create custom search connectors for any remote location you wish. For example, you can search various sites from within Windows Explorer.

You install the Search Connectors by double clicking them in Windows 7. Explorer will automatically install the connector. Then, create a shortcut to the actual Search, which is located in your Users Folder\Search.
