Opening WPG files

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

What is a WPG file?

Files that contain the .wpg file extension are normally associated with the Corel WordPerfect word processing application. Initially developed by a BYU graduate student, the WordPerfect program was eventually acquired by Corel. Similar to Microsoft's Word, Corel WordPerfect is a word processing application. However, unlike Word, the software is not available as a standalone product and is only available when purchased with the entire WordPerfect office suite.

WPG files are graphic files that are used by the WordPerfect program. These files can contain up to 256 colors and support both vector and bitmap images.

The WildTangent software application also uses the .wpg file suffix. These WPG files contain the PNG files that are used by the WildTangent application.

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.
