Have you encountered a problem with a AMS file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a AMS file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your AMS file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


The file extension AMS identifies so-called Adobe Monitor Setup files. These are setup files customized for specific monitor models that contain color calibration information. Thus, often manufacturers of monitors have provided these files for their models.

These files are used to determine the color representation as well as the RGB / CMYK color space conversion to ensure the same color representation and processing on different monitor models.

AMS files have since been replaced by csf files, but can still be processed by Photoshop.

How to open a AMS file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the AMS file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a AMS file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support AMS files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a AMS file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all AMS files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with AMS there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the AMS file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the AMS file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
