Files wont open

    Sorry I hadn't got back on this. I forget what I've been on, need to keep a diary I guess. Anyway I solved my problem with opening .wps and other documents, worked great for me. I down loaded FileViewer Lite and opened all the pesky problems I was having. Open them in FileViewer Lite, Ctl + A, (select all), copy and paste in to the format you are using. Worked just fine so far.

    I can't believe how dumb I was trying to get used to Win8 when I started this post back in Feb. 2013. Now here we are with Win8.I and I absolutely love it. I even bought the flagship Win8.1 phone the Nokia Lumia 1520, and it also is "awesome" as they say in the States. I also bought the much acclaimed One Plus One phone with Android Kit-Kat v4.4.4. Its an excellent "phone" or pocket computer, as I call them. However, I still love my Win8.I phone and PC's the best. Back to this post:
    Bacsi65, that FileViewer Lite is a good site. I had a problem opening old .wps files and I used a download of Microsoft Word Viewer, but FileViewer is better and covers more extensions.

    Thanks, appreciate that. That's the first time this old timer has helped someone. Usually it's the other way around
