.wp6 File Extension

Developer: Corel
File type: WordPerfect 6 Document
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .wp6. Files with the file extension .wp6 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .wp6 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .wp6 file?

Files with the .wp6 extension are text files, particularly word documents, and WP6 was the first file format for version 6 of the WordPerfect application which offered a GUI (Graphical User Interface) for the page layout editing and text formatting features integrated into this word processing application. This GUI was unavailable in previous versions of the WordPerfect application, and another feature not found in older versions was the preview function developed and implemented by Corel into WordPerfect 6, so users can see the effects of the page layout elements and text formatting options they applied on the content of their WP6 projects. New typeface formatting options were also bundled with this version of WordPerfect. Files in the .wp6 format can be opened and viewed using the Corel WordPerfect X6 application, a newer version of this word processing program that was developed for Microsoft Windows-based systems. WordPerfect 6 and previous versions were for Microsoft DOS (Disk Operating System) environments, so as of this writing, WPD is the format used by the Corel WordPerfect Office X6 program and not the .wp6 extension.

how to open a .wp6 file?

Launch a .wp6 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 .wp6 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 .wp6 files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .wp6 file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .wp6 file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .wp6 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, .wp6. 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.
