What is an MNO file?
Text file that contains information about a Web document; saved in an XML format and has a main <info> tag that contains descriptive items within <infoitem> tags; may be created by either Adobe Dreamweaver or Contribute.
MNO files have the same filename as the file they describe, with the .mno extension attached. For example, the file home.html may have an associated Design Note named home.html.mno.
Design Notes may include information such as the file author, status, file type, document name, and a description of the file. They may also contain other user-defined data.

Monopoly Saved Game
2.0 | 2 Votes
An MNO file may also be a saved game created by Westwood Studios Monopoly, a video game version of the classic board game. It contains a record of a user's in-progress Monopoly game. MNO files record a game's players, used and unused Chance and Community Chest cards, property status, current cash distribution, and other data.
Westwood Studios, a division of Hasbro Electronic Entertainment, published several popular video games in the 1990s. In 1995, the studio released a video game version of Monopoly. The game allowed players to play against AI, local, and online opponents.
When a player saved an in-progress Monopoly game, the game was saved as an MNO file. Players could select and load MNO files from Monopoly's main menu to resume their saved games.
NOTE: A repackaged version of Westwood Studios Monopoly was released in 1998. This version also saved in-progress games as MNO files.
How to open an MNO file
If you still have access to Westwood Studios Monopoly (Windows, Mac), you can use it to open your MNO file and resume playing the saved game it contains. Players who do not have access to a PC that supports Westwood Studios Monopoly may be able to find unofficial, updated versions of the game online.
