Opening Microsoft Works files

Opening Microsoft Works without Microsoft Works

A file with a .wps extension belongs to Microsoft Works, and Microsoft Works was discontinued in 2007.

Microsoft Works was a smaller, less expensive and fewer featured versions of Microsoft Office, and for most peoples’ needs, was more than enough to be able to produce a letter, spreadsheet or database.

If you have received a Microsoft Works file with a .wps extension, and you need to open it, then you can simply do this by first opening Microsoft Word, assuming you have this installed, and then clicking on File, Open and changing the file type to ‘All Files’, browse to the file location and select the file followed by Open.

That’s all you need to do, Word has the inbuilt ability to open Microsoft Works files so there is no tool needed.
