How to open file with WPS extension?

WPS file description

WPS is word processor file format used by Microsoft Works. This software application is discontinued as Microsoft has introduced Microsoft Office. It was created as low budget application having less features as compared to Microsoft Word.

Due to fewer options this was commonly used by home based users. Because of the simplicity of the software applications this word processing format was not suitable for business class users or organizations which are looking for more word processing options and features. Due to its small customer base Microsoft discontinued the application and Microsoft Office was introduced which not only had enhanced word processing options but also other applications as well.
