A WPS file is also known as a Microsoft Works Word Processor document, and was a popular document format back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It’s similar to a normal Microsoft Word Document, but doesn’t have advanced formatting features that a normal document format would have.

A DOC file is a word processing file that has been created by Microsoft Word or a similar word processing tool such as Apache Office. DOC files support text, as well as multimedia, charts, tables and various advanced formatting features.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I convert a WPS to Word?

The easiest way to convert a WPS to Word is to use an online conversion tool, such as Zamzar, where you are able to upload your WPS file and convert to DOC in real time, without the need to download any software.

Can I open a WPS file in Word?

Yes, depending on your version of Word and the version of Microsoft Works that created the WPS file. Simply open Microsoft Word, click 'File' in the top menu, then 'Open', and select your WPS file. If it's compatible, it will open and appear on the page and appear much like a normal DOC file. If it's not compatible, you can use an online conversion tool, such as Zamzar, to convert it to a DOC file, and then open it that way.

How do I print a WPS file?

Printing a WPS file is simple, provided the version of Word you are running allows you to open the WPS file. Simply open Microsoft Word, click 'File' in the top menu, then 'Open', and select your WPS file. The file should then open in Word, and you can print, as you would normally print a document, by selecting 'File', then 'Print'. If the file doesn't open, then simply convert it to a DOC file, open that DOC file, and print as you usually would.

What is a WPS file?

A WPS file is a document file that has been created by the now defunct Microsoft Works – a popular program in the 1980s and early 1990s. It is similar to a DOC file, with the major difference being that it is more limited in terms of its formatting features. WPS files can still be opened today, but as Works is no more, the files are becoming few and far between.

How do I open a WPS file?

If you have Microsoft Word then you should be able to open a WPS file by locating the WPS file and clicking 'Open with Word'. If the WPS file is not compatible, it may be that your version of Word doesn’t support WPS files. If this is the case, you can convert the WPS file to another format using an online file converter, such as Zamzar.
