XPS Document Format XPS Converter
XPS is short for ‘XML Paper Specification’. It was developed by Microsoft and designed to be a shareable file format that maintained the fidelity of documents. XPS files have their contents and formatting protected so they can’t be edited. XPS was created to be an alternative to Adobe’s PDF. However, PDF has become the universal standard, which has meant that XPS is no longer commonly used.
Whereas PDF files will open on almost all devices, to open an XPS file you usually need a specific viewer or to convert them into PDF format first. XPS Viewer is no longer automatically installed with Windows since Version 10, because PDF has become the universal format for file sharing. However, you can still download XPS Viewer from the Microsoft Store or App Store. If you need to create an XPS file rather than a PDF, you can also download apps like the XPS Document Writer.
PDF Document Format PDF Converter
PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).
PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.
How to convert a XPS to a PDF file?
- 1. Choose the XPS file that you want to convert.
- 2. Select PDF as the the format you want to convert your XPS file to.
