How To Open A Wps File

To view a Microsoft Works .wps file in Microsoft Word, you need a converter that enables Microsoft Word to view the files.

Microsoft provides a free file called WorksConv.exe that is compatible with Microsoft Word 2000 and later, allowing you to open Microsoft Works 6.0 to 9.0 documents. To open older .wps documents created with Microsoft Works 4.0 or 4.5, Microsoft provides Wks4Converter_en-US.msi. We recommend downloading and installing both of these files. Once these files are downloaded, follow the steps listed below. Close any open Microsoft Word windows. Double-click the WorksConv.exe file and follow the prompts to install it. Then, double-click the Wks4Converter_en-US.msi file and follow the prompts to install as well.

Programs that open WPS files

After installing both files, open Microsoft Word. In Microsoft Word, click File and then click Open. If there is no File menu, click the Microsoft Office button in the top-left of the Word window, then click Open. In the Open window, in the File type drop-down menu or the unlabeled drop-down menu next to File name are: Works 4.x (*.wps), Works 6-9 Document (*.wps), and Works 6.0 (*.wps). Select the appropriate version of Works for the file you are opening.

If you're not sure which version your Works file is, try the Works 6-9 Document (*.wps) option first. Browse to the location of the Works file you want to open, select the file, then click Open. Depending on the Microsoft Works file, it may look strange because formatting is not converted correctly. If this occurs, try opening the file as a different Works version. If this does not work, you'll have to change the formatting manually in Word if you want it to display correctly. If you want to continue to use this file or want to make it compatible with Microsoft Word, follow the steps below.

In the Save as typedrop-down menu or the unlabeled drop-down menu next to the File name text field, make sure to select Microsoft Word (*.docx). Click Ok or Save when done.
