Thanks for joining the Online Community, shelleyv5.

It’s my priority that you’re able to open the WebConnect file in TextEdit.

To do this, you’ll have to configure the setup of your computer. Let me walk you through the steps.

Here’s how:


  1. Right-click on the file that uses the file type you'd like to change the default for. For example, one with a.QBO extension
  2. Choose Get Info.
  3. If the section is not yet expanded, click on Open With.
  4. Click the drop-down and choose TextEdit.
  5. Choose Change All.
  6. Select Continue if you agree to change all similar documents to open with the application.

Any time you open a file with the .QBO extension, the Finder will automatically open it with Text Edit.

This information should point you in the right direction opening the WebConnect file.

Please keep me posted on if you're able to successfully access the file. I'm still here if you need further assistance.
