Notes about the XKS 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 XKS file type is primarily associated with 'IBM Softcopy Reader' by IBM. A Java-based online documentation reader and organizer made up of two programs: the Book Reader and the Bookshelf Organizer. It is shipped free of charge on the IBM Collection Kits, and can be freely downloaded from IBM. The Softcopy Reader was introduced in 2000 to replace the IBM Library Reader.
