How to open WPS files

Postby JOHNE » Thu Mar 11, 2010 5:51 pm

During the fix for a hard drive meltdown, I lost Microsoft Word and Works on my computer, which runs Vista. Don't have the disks to reinstall. Downloaded openoffice, but when I try to open an older WPS files, it tries to filter through Adobe, Internet Explorer or Microsoft Notepad and I end up with gobbledygook. How do I change it to open WPS files properly?

Hi and welcome to the forums.

OpenOffice can't open WPS files directly.

Openoffice doesnt open the WPS file.Its always better to do a Bing search before posting the question.Earlier I also faced the similar kind of situation,I formatted my computer,lost the data and was not able to open few files.I came to this forum ,search few topics and found the answer so its always better to either do a bing search or search with in the forum to find the solution.
