WPS Office (an acronym for Writer, Presentation and Spreadsheets, also known as Kingsoft Office) has been around for over two decades and has always been available only as shareware, but now, a downgraded version of WPS Office 10 Business was also released as freeware, which is good news indeed. If you don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars for Microsoft Office Suite, or don’t like its new subscription option (which means you’ll pay a fee every year), then you can simply try its free alternative version from Kingsoft.
As a 67MB free office productivity suite, WPS Office 10 Free has very low system requirements and allows you to create top quality documents without worrying about inhibiting the performance of your PC. Although it’s small, its functionality is complete. WPS Office 10 Free consists of three powerful applications for daily document producing, data analyzing and presentation needs known as Writer, Spreadsheets and Presentation – all with a familiar ribbon-based interface of Microsoft Office 2013 and user-friendly functions. No re-learning process is required.
Not only does WPS Office 10 Free have the basic functions that its peers provide, but it has many outstanding features some other software don’t include, such as an automatic spell checker, a built-in PDF converter, customizable table functions, document encryption, dynamic slides and more. WPS Office 10 Free also has some nifty unique features of its own, such as being able to view and switch between multiple documents in a single window through a series of tabs, and being able to undo actions even after saving documents.
WPS Office 10 Free is highly compatible with most Microsoft Office and can view and handle almost all documents created by Microsoft Office. Its three components, that is, WPS Writer, WPS Spreadsheets and WPS Presentation, can open, read and save the corresponding products with Microsoft Office format (Word, Excel and PowerPoint). Furthermore, you can save your Kingsoft documents in the Microsoft Office format so other people can view and edit them without having Kingsoft Office installed on the same computer. But there is one caveat: You can open office files with extensions .docx, .xlsx and .pptx and modify these types of files. But you cannot save the documents in these new file formats. You can only save in .doc, .xls and .ppt format.
Input file formats: Word (97/2000/2003/2007/2010) doc, dot, docx, .rtf, .wps and .wpt formats
Output file formats: Word (97/2000/2003) .doc, .dot, .wps and .wpt format.
