.W File Association 2

File created by the Google Toolbar, a Web browser addon that uses Google Web search; saves a list of historical searches performed with Google Toolbar; sometimes used in forensics when figuring out what the user was last searching for on the Web.

More Information

W files are saved to the following directory after you've installed Google Toolbar:

C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Google\Local Search History\

NOTE: Google Toolbar is not available for Chrome, since Chrome already uses Google by default for Web searches. Additionally, Google Toolbar for Firefox has been discontinued.
