The XPS file format is a method for the creation of printable documents created by Microsoft to compete with the well-known PDF format. Although recent versions of Windows have the ability to read XPS files by default, many older computers do not have the software installed to do this. If you need to send an XPS document to another person, you may have better success using the PDF format. Convert an XPS file to a PDF file online using Comet Docs.

    Navigate to the Comet Docs website (see link in the Resources). Click the "Browse" button. Locate the XPS document you want to convert and double-click it.
