.wp File Extension

Developer: Corel
File type: WordPerfect Document
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .wp. Files with the file extension .wp can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .wp files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .wp file?

The WP extension is used in output files of the WordPerfect application, a word processing program developed for users with Microsoft Windows-based systems. Files in the .wp format are more commonly known as WordPerfect documents, and these are essentially text files that may contain page layout elements and formatting attributes as well as other document presentation objects entered by the creators of the .wp files. Corel developed the WordPerfect Office X6, which can be used to open and view the content of these WP files. These WP documents can be created by users with the Microsoft DOS (Disk Operating System) version of the WordPerfect application. The version of WordPerfect developed for Microsoft Windows 3.1 systems may also be used to create these WP files. Latest releases from Corel for the WordPerfect software use the WPD format as the extension of its output document files. Mac users can use the Planamesa NeoOffice program to open and view the content of files with the .wp extension.

how to open a .wp file?

Launch a .wp file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .wp file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .wp files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .wp file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .wp file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .wp files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .wp. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
