I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!


Used it for over a year to convert my bank statements to csv files. Great quick app, increased my productivity a lot. Also, amazing support - always helped me quickly!

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.


I have been so thankful for Zamzar’s support from the beginning of the Pandemic to the present day. Their service is first rate & their helpfulness is always the best it could be.


A very useful and professional site. The service is easy to use and the administrators are helpful and courteous.

David Shelton

It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.

Ana Suárez

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.

Sabina Calis

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

I feel like Zamzar is an active team member, especially for projects that I work on where I am the workhorse and it saves so much time and frustration. I am spoiled with Zamzar, because they have set the bar for file conversion and customer service very high.

Deborah Herman

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.

XPS Document Format

XPS Converter

An XPS file has the full name XML Paper Specification file, and is similar in nature to a PDF file. XPS files are documents that contain information that has been written using XPS page description language. In the documents, the type of information recorded includes how the page should look and its formatting, and also information specific to printing.

If a file is saved as an XPS file then its contents can’t be edited. In that sense it is similar to the PDF format, except an XPS file isn’t written using PDF’s PostScript programming language but rather XML.

Various applications can open XPS files, including Microsoft’s XPS viewer and NiXPS’s View and Edit programs.

PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

The PDF format, or Portable Document Format file, was developed by Adobe Systems. PDF files are popular because they can be easily viewed and edited in a variety of computing platforms. Word documents can easily be exported or converted to PDF, and both presentations and images are also often saved out as a PDF file. Typically, PDF files are not created from scratch, but rather existing file types are converted into PDF format to allow the file to be easily shared and accessed.

PDF files normally look exactly like the original file, with fonts, colours and images all preserved. They can also be annotated and can be opened by almost any device and by any modern web browser. PDF files can be edited using Adobe Acrobat PDF software, which was developed almost 30 years ago and is available on Windows and MacOS.

Frequently asked questions

If you’ve got any questions about converting or compressing files with Zamzar, we’re happy to help! We’ve answered a few commonly-asked questions below, to get you started, and you can find out more information about file conversion and compression with Zamzar, in our Help centre.

You can convert an XPS file to PDF by using an online conversion tool like the free one on Zamzar’s website. Zamzar lets you convert files without downloading any extra software – just upload your XPS file, select PDF, then ‘Convert Now’, and then download your new PDF file.

However, if you have a Windows computer with XPS Viewer already installed, you can also open an XPS file with that and then use the ‘Print’ function to create a PDF version.

Microsoft’s XPS Viewer opens XPS files. However, it is no longer automatically installed with Windows v10 and above because PDF has become the universal format for file sharing. You can turn XPS files into PDFs using Zamzar’s three-step conversion tool – simply upload the XPS document, click to convert, then download your PDF.

If you regularly view XPS files and don’t want to convert them to PDF, you can also install XPS Viewer through the Settings section of your Windows device.

PDF and XPS are both designed to be shareable file formats that maintain the fidelity of documents. XPS was developed by Microsoft, but PDF is much more widely used. You can open PDFs on most devices.

If you have a file in an XPS format but don’t have a viewer that can open it, you will need to convert it first. This is easy with Zamzar’s free three-step conversion tool. Just upload your XPS file to the online tool, select ‘PDF’ as the format, then ‘Convert Now’, and then download your file.

XPS Viewer is not automatically installed on Windows 10, but it’s easy to convert XPS files to PDF using Zamzar’s website instead. Upload one or more XPS files to the three-step conversion tool, then click to convert them to PDF. You can then download your PDF files and view them with any web browser.

You can also open an XPS file with Google Drive, if you have a Google account. You would need to log in to your Google account, upload the file to your Drive, then double-click on it to open it.

XPS files are a format for Microsoft Windows, so you may want to convert them to PDF to open on your Mac. It’s very quick to do this with an online converter like Zamzar. There are only three steps with Zamzar’s online tool – upload your XPS file, select PDF and then ‘Convert Now’, and then download your converted file.

Alternatively, if you have a Google account you can open an XPS file with Google Drive. There are also some apps that you can download to your Mac to view XPS files, such as NiXPS View.
