Hi everybody .This is my first appearance on this forum. I am really stuck, hope you can help. After upgrading to Windows 7 all My Documents have acquired a wps extension and they open in Wordpad in HTML code. I have tried changing the extensions and tried opening them in Word but they are always in HTML. Any suggestions please.

Welcome,

Do I remember correctly that .WPS is the MS Works extension? If so you will need to go to the MS site and get the reader/converter for Works to be able to read / edit the documents in Word.

Keep us posted

Files with a WPS extension are documents that are created by the word processor in Microsoft Works.

 

You can download Microsoft works word processor.
