.wsd File Extension

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

what is a .wsd file?

Files with the WSD extension are WordStar documents, and these files can be opened as of this writing by using the Corel WordPerfect Office X6 application. These WSD files are classified as text files and contains text with limited layout formatting attributes and text layout elements. Micropro International developed the WordStar word processing application for the Microsoft DOS (Disk Operating System) environment. This application was widely used in the 80s as among the most popular word processing programs at that time. Micropro International has abandoned further development and support for the WordStar application. Integrated into WordStar is the WYSIWYG editor, particularly the version developed for Microsoft DOS platforms. These WSD files and the WordStar word processing software were outdone in terms of usability and popularity in the mid 80s by the WordPerfect version 4 application, which is another old word processing software, primarily because WordPerfect 4.x integrated more features into its text and layout formatting options than WordStar and any other word processing application for the MS DOS environment at that time.

a word of warning

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