File extension: XPS

Notes about the XPS file extension:

Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The XPS file type is primarily associated with 'XML Paper Specification' by Microsoft Corporation.

The XML Paper Specification (XPS), formerly codenamed Metro and subsuming the Next Generation Print Path (NGPP) marketing concept, is Microsoft's initiative to integrate document creation and viewing into its Windows operating system.

XPS is shipped with Microsoft's Windows Vista. The file format is basically a Zipped XML file.

In both XP and Vista if you look in the Control Panel Printers you should find an XPS Printer pre-installed. To create these files you only need to use that printer for the output device. In Vista you should be able to just double click the file to open it in a viewer (this function uses IE 7 code and may not be configured automatically). Microsoft has a viewer XP users can download.
