Sure would appreciate any insight into how I can get these files to open.  When I try it looks more like machine language.


Thanks for any and all help.

I'm not sure what the GWD file is but the WPS and XLR are possible Microsoft Works files. LibreOffice can open WPS files but I'm not sure about the XLR files.

XLR is a file extension for a spreadsheet file used by Microsoft Works. XLR files can contain either spreadsheet or chart data, and can be opened with Microsoft Works, Excel, and the Excel Viewer.


A GWD file is a watchface design project created by Gear Watch Designer, an application used by developers to create faces for Samsung watches such as Gear S, Gear S2, Gear S3, and Gear Fit2.


The WPS file format is very similar to the DOC format, it too is a text document but it is created with Microsoft Works Word Processor; and does not include advanced formatting options and macros that a Word document may contain. Most versions of Microsoft Word can open a WPS file, as well as Microsoft Publisher.
