What is an OXPS file?
An .OXPS file is an Open XML Paper Specification file.
The OXPS file extension stands for Open XML Paper Specification, the most recent version of the XPS file format that Microsoft and Ecma International created. These XPS and OXPS file extensions are document file formats. Like PDFs, .oxps and .xps files are used to publish, share, and distribute fixed-layout documents. As an alternative to PDFs, the OXPS file format stores text and multimedia data, formatting specifications, and printing layout attributes.
