.xyp File Extension

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

what is a .xyp file?

XYP is the standard file format used by the XYWrite Plus application for its output files. The XYWrite Plus software is a word processing program developed by the Technology Group, which also means files with the .xyp extension are word documents that can have content with text formatting attributes and page layout elements among other digital objects like charts, images and tables inserted or embedded by users who created the XYP documents. Among these text formatting options provided by the XYWrite Plus application include bolded, underlined and italicized characters and symbols, the ability to select font types and font colors, resizing text and other objects embedded into the XYP document among others. The XYWrite Plus software must be available in a user's system to open and view the content of an XYP document using this word processing program, because most Microsoft Windows-based applications as of this writing, like the Corel WordPerfect Office X6 software, can only open and view the content of files saved in the .xy format using the XYWrite application (not XYWrite Plus) and documents in the XY3 format from XYWrite 3.

how to open a .xyp file?

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

XYWrite for Windows

XYWrite for Windows

XyWrite for Windows is a program that was written by David Erickson. The marketing of the program was done through XyQuest which was later on bought by The Technology Group. The final version that was released for Windows was 4.13. This program was written in assembly language which gives it the capability of running faster than the other word processing programs which were written in a more advanced language. It has the capability of opening up to a maximum of 9 different files which can be edited using separate windows for each of them allowing the user to perform copy and paste operation in a faster way. Included in it is a macro programming language also known as XPL which offers numerous advantages that can be used for reformatting, search and replace as well as copy-editing. Without the use of a computer mouse, the user has the capability of typing the commands in the command line directly.

a word of warning

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