I’ve received a file that finishes .xps. what is it and should I open it?
An XPS file is an XML Paper Specification document which is Microsoft’s answer to Adobe Acrobat, or PDF files.
XPS files are slowly becoming more common as time goes on although they are still fairly rare creatures.
If you want to open them, you’ll need the XPS reader sofware which is a free download from Microsoft. They also offer the XML Essentials Pack which allows you to create these files as well.
You should treat any file you receive as being potentially infected and run it with an up to date virus scanner.
