If you have ever used the Photos app on an iOS (Apple) device then you may have encountered an .AEE file at some point in time.

Unfortunately, these .AAE files are not necessarily easy to open up on a Windows computer, and this means that a lot of people are missing out on opening files that they may otherwise need to access. Luckily, we can help you learn how to open AAE file in Windows so that you don’t need to miss out.

What are .AAE Files?

If you haven’t heard of .AAE files, that’s fine—a lot of people haven’t, especially if you do not typically use Photos as part of your photo editing software. Simply put, an AAE file is a file that is created to house edits made to existing images on the iOS Photos software.

They will usually be found alongside standard .JPG image files for which edits have been made.

The AAE files are only created when changes are made to an existing photo in the iOS 8 version of the Photos application, running OS X 10.10 or later.

Since the changes made and stored in the .AAE files are saved in the XML format, it is thus the case that the changes can be viewed not only in standard means but also through Notepad or TextEdit.


Programs to Open AAE Files on Windows

If you want to learn how to open AAE file on Windows then you will need one of the two following programs or websites running on your device: Dropbox or Microsoft Notepad.

Since the data stored on the AAE file is saved in an XML format, Microsoft Notepad will be able to open and convert the content.

Alternatively, you can open the full file by using an online service such as Dropbox or an Apple (iOS) photo editing application that can also run on Windows.


How to Open AAE Files with Apple Converters

There are a number of different iOS to Windows converters that exist nowadays, and these can be highly effective.

This is arguably the simplest way to open up your .AAE files by using a Windows computer; simply upload the .AAE file in question and allow the converter to change it into a form your device can use.

Some converters that you may wish to try include or, just to name a few of the many different converters available online or from the apple store.


How to Open AAE Files with Apple Programs

An alternative option that you may want to consider is to download an Apple program onto your Windows device.

There are plenty of programs that can be opened on both Windows and Apple devices and this is, therefore, an easy way for you to open up .AAE files on your Windows device.

Some such programs could include applications such as Gimp or Photoshop, although whether specific programs will open AAE files may depend on the age of the software.


How to Open AAE Files in Windows with Dropbox

If you decide to open your .AAE files on a Windows device then you will need a way to do so—and Dropbox is one of the easiest solutions to this problem. To open up an .AAE file by using Dropbox, just follow the following:

  1. Start by uploading the files to the service.
  2. Login to your Dropbox account to retrieve the file, where the pictures will automatically be opened up for you.
  3. Save the image files to your computer.
