When working in Windows 10 we can notice how there are different files with numerous extensions that allow you to work on them, but many of these extensions require the use of special applications to open them. One of this type of files is the XPS document, these are a type of file that is stored in XML Paper Specification format which has been developed by Microsoft and has the .xps extension..

 

XPS files are based on XML facilitating their access and reading, but naturally in Windows 10 this type of files does not open by default, instead it is necessary to install the viewer for it, TechnoWikis will explain how to install this viewer in Windows 10 in a functional way.
