How To Open a Microsoft .wps File In Microsoft Word 2013

Here we are describe how to convert .WPS File in Microsoft word 2013,After do that you can easy to work and open files for your work.

A free file called WorksConv.exe provided by Microsoft that much easy to use and compatible with Microsoft Word 200 and later version, It’s allowing you to open Microsoft works 6.0 to 9.0 documents. 

First open older .WPS files created with Microsoft Works 4.0 or 4.5. Microsoft gives another free file named Wks4Converter en-US.msi, This is also compatible with Microsoft Word 2000 and later.

We recommend downloading and installing both of these files.

Tip: Microsoft Word 2013 is capable of opening Microsoft Works 6.0 to 9.0 documents by default. However, you will still need to download and install the Wks4Converter_en-US.msi file to open Microsoft Works 4.0 or 4.5 documents.

Once these files have been downloaded, follow the steps listed below.

1.    Close any open Microsoft Word window.
2.    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 it as well.
3.    After installing both files, open Microsoft Word.
4.    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.

Tip: In Word 2013, after clicking the Open option, you need to select Computer, then click Browse.

5.    In the Open window, within the "File of type" drop-down menu or the unlabeled drop-down menu next to the File name text field, you should now have two or three options: "Works 4.x (*.wps)", "Works 6-9 Document (*.wps)", and "Works 6.0 (*.wps)".
6.    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.
7.    Browse to the location of the Works file you want to open, select the file, then click Open.
After I open the file, it's not formatted properly
Depending on how the Microsoft Works file was originally created and formatted, you may be able to open it, but it will look strange because the formatting was not converted properly. 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.

Saving the file as a Word file

If you want to continue to use this file or want to make it compatible with Microsoft Word, follow the steps below.
1.    After the file has been opened and edited, click File and choose Save As. If there is no File menu, click the Microsoft Office button in the top left of the Word window, then click Save As.
2.    In the Save As window, select the location you want to save the file.
3.    Type a name for the file if you want to change it and, in the Save as type dropdown menu, make sure to select Microsoft Word (*.doc).
4.    Click Ok or Save when done.
