OXPS and PDF files are actually quite similar. PDFs are more popular, and if you understand what a PDF is, you’ll understand what an OXPS file is.
PDFs usually contain pages of text, images, charts, and hyperlinks. They work across pretty much all operating systems interchangeably and are also supported by most applications and websites.
OXPS files, meanwhile, are based on the XPS format, which Microsoft created in the late 2000s as an attempt to overtake the PDF in popularity. However, that did not happen. Today, OXPS files are essentially extinct with very few people relying on them over simply using PDF.
As mentioned in the previous section, OXPS is practically a dead technology. Very few websites and applications support it and it doesn’t have nearly the same versatility and compatibility that we see with PDFs.
However, you might have some old OXPS documents on your system. Or, you may find old OXPS documents littered around the internet. As time goes by, these files will become trickier and trickier to open. It would be wise to convert them to PDF so you know you’ll always be able to access them quickly and easily, regardless of if you’re on your computer, phone, or tablet.
The conversion tool on this page can handle your OXPS to PDF needs. You can use it as much as you want without cost, there is no need to send us your email, and your converted PDFs will not have any watermarks.
To get started, you’ll need to upload one or more OXPS files. You can convert up to 20 files in one session. Don’t worry: if you have more than 20 files, you can simply repeat these steps as much as you need.
First, hit the “UPLOAD FILES” button. Alternatively, you can drag and drop your files onto the “Drop Your Files Here” field. Once you’ve uploaded them, our automated tool will immediately begin the conversion process.
When a file is finished converting, the progress bar in the queue will change to a button that says “DOWNLOAD”. Hit that button and you’ll get your new PDF. You can repeat this for the rest of the files in the queue. To save time, you can also wait until all the conversions are done and then hit the “DOWNLOAD ALL” button to receive a ZIP archive with all of your new PDFs inside.
When you’re ready to do a new batch, hit the “CLEAR QUEUE” button and repeat these steps. There is no limit to the number of conversions you can perform.
You do not need to be concerned about using our conversion tool. Your original OXPS files remain safe on your computer. If you are unhappy with the PDF files our tool creates, you can always fall back to your original master OXPS files.
Also, our tool automatically purges all data after 60 minutes. That means your uploaded OXPS files and the PDF files our server creates get deleted after just one hour. This ensures your private data remains private.
