    How to open .wps files.

    I had no problem when I opened in file viewer lite. I used ctrl + A to select all, then copied it into a wordpad, or even Jarte. Good luck. I think you can upgrade file opener night and has more options, but costs, I haven't checked that out. Hope this works for you. Semper Fi

    How to open .wps files.

    Hey Jimbo, got a kick out of your reply, but not sure of your real knowledge. There are many more intelligent words to use that don't have to have most of the spelling bleeped out. Remember, profanity is a strong expression of a WEAK mind!!!

    Solved Files wont open

    Good morning Wynona. Liked the info. I am not at all pleased with WIN8. I may try something like what you've done. If I don't like it I can always remove in add/remove. I'm still in the learning curve WIN8, I have to say, for me at least, it certainly isn't user friendly. Thanks, Smitty:thumb:
