Opening WPD files

Did your computer fail to open a WPD file? We explain what WPD files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your WPD files.

What is a WPD file?

The .wpd extension is most commonly assigned to files that have been created in Corel WordPerfect. WordPerfect is a word processing application that is included with purchase of the WordPerfect Office suite. WPD files can contain tables, drawn objects, formatted text and graphics.

The .wpd extension is also assigned to documents that have been created with the 602PC Suite. This suite is an alternative to the Microsoft Word suite of office products. These WPD documents contain text documents that have been created with the 602PC text editor that is included in the 602PC suite.

In some situations a .wpd file may also contain a Windows printer driver or an audio file that has been created by the SAW Studio software.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
