Questions and answers

  • What is the purpose of a ".MXADDON backup" file?

    The purpose of a ".MXADDON backup" file is to serve as a backup copy of an MXADDON file. MXADDON files are used in the Maxthon web browser, which is primarily used in China. These files contain add-ons or extensions that enhance the functionality of the browser.

    The ".MXADDON backup" file is created when the user backs up or exports an MXADDON file. It ensures that a copy of the add-on or extension is saved in case of data loss, system crashes, or when transferring the file to another device or browser installation.

    By having a backup file, users can easily restore their add-ons or extensions to their previous state without having to reinstall or reconfigure them. This backup file provides a convenient way to safeguard and restore the customizations made to the Maxthon browser.

  • How can I create a ".MXADDON backup" file for my application?

    To create a ".MXADDON backup" file for your application, you can follow these steps:

    1. Open the application folder on your computer where the ".MXADDON" file is located.
    2. Right-click on the ".MXADDON" file and select "Copy" from the context menu.
    3. Right-click on an empty space in the same folder and select "Paste" from the context menu. This will create a copy of the ".MXADDON" file with a similar name.
    4. Rename the copied file to include the word "backup" or any other identifier to differentiate it from the original file. For example, you can name it "myapp_backup.MXADDON".
    5. Your ".MXADDON" backup file is now created and ready to be used as a backup for your application.
