.wp7 File Extension

Developer: Corel
File type: WordPerfect 7 Document
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .wp7. Files with the file extension .wp7 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .wp7 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .wp7 file?

Files in the .wp7 format are also called WordPerfect 7 documents, and these files are essentially text documents which may be integrated with text formatting and page layout elements by the user with the WordPerfect 7 word processing program, and later versions of this application can be used to open and view the content of these .wp7 files. Corel WordPerfect Office X6 is a newer version of WordPerfect and can also be used to open files saved in the .wp7 format. WordPerfect 7 provides more word processing features than older versions, such as font styling and typeface options, the ability to insert and format charts or tables and a preview window. Corel has discontinued the use of WP7 for the document output format of their newer WordPerfect releases, and these newer WordPerfect versions now use WPD as their default document output file format. The WordPerfect 7 program along with the WP7 file format were developed for the Microsoft DOS (Disk Operating System) environments.

how to open a .wp7 file?

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .wp7 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, .wp7. 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.
