What is the .TBR File Extension?

.TBR File Extension Description:

SoftQuad Software developed The XMetaL program. The company later sold the rights to develop and distribute the products to JustSystems Corporations. SoftQuad gained popularity with its HotMetaL HTML editor. The program is based on the SGML Editor. SGML stands for Standard Generalized Markup Language which is a language used to mark and format documents. HotMetaL was developed from its early uses as an HTML editor to allow it to edit, view and publish XML content. The revisions have changed the original program so much that it was renamed XMetaL. The software is used primarily to format documents by using XML.

XML is the eXensible Markup Language. The language is used to format files so that web browsers can view them. The XMetaL software uses files with the TBR file extension to store some system resources. The program attaches the file extension .tbr to toolbar/menu configurations. Toolbars and menus are used by the XMetaL's graphical user interface so that the user can gain accesses to the tasks and processes that are available with the program. Users can change the settings of the toolbars and menus by using files with the .tbr file extension.

The program already comes with its own configuration settings, which are defaults saved with the TBR file extension. The settings of the toolbars and menu can be changed by the user and saved by the files with the file extension TBR. The user can use settings that are saved with the .tbr file extension repeatedly.

The Norton Desktop shell DOS also uses the TBR file extension. Norton Desktop provides an easier to use interface for systems that run on the Disk Operating System. The program allows users to customize the settings of their toolbar. The settings are stored in files, which have the TBR file extension. The user to show only the processes that they often use can customize files with the TBR file extension. These files are then referenced by the Norton Desktop shell to access icons used in the toolbar and the links to processes.
