‘XPS file format’ is something that most of us have noticed when trying to print a document from MS Office software. But, what this format exactly is and what it is used for is not something very well known.
- XPS (XML Paper Specification) is a document format developed my Microsoft which performs pretty much as an alternative to PDF file format.
- XPS file allows user to, Save , share, digitally sign and protect documents.
- Just like a PDF document, saved XPS document, preserve its original format and cannot be edited after saving.
- While XPS documents can be created using MS office package, to read these files we need to have either MS Office Suit or XPS viewer.
