File Extension SZX

.SZX File

File extension: SZX
File type: ZX-State Snapshot


Notes about the SZX 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 SZX file type is primarily associated with 'ZX Spectrum Emulator'. A zx-state (.SZX) file is Spectaculator's preferred snapshot (state) format. It is a modern snapshot format designed to overcome the limitations of existing formats such as .Z80 and .SNA. Currently only Spectaculator and Fuse support this format.
