What is XPS file?

An .XPS file is a page layout file that is saved in Microsoft XPS format. The XPS file, also known as the XML Paper Specification file, describes the structure and content for the document including the page layout and appearance details. The XPS file is similar to the PDF file; however, the XPS file is supported in XML format. Also, the XPS file can be used consistently across various platforms and operating systems. The XPS file access permission can be set by using the XPS Viewer and also the XPS file can be digitally signed using the XPS Viewer.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the XPS file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the XPS file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the XPS file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the XPS file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the XPS file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the XPS file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
