I have docs on Works that I can't open because I no longer have the software. I need a safe place to download Works. Can I do that here, I'm not finding a download link.

thank you!

You could try converting the .wps files to .odt with an online converting service like for example cloudconvert. Then use LibreOffice to open the .odt:s.

What formats do you need to open?

I think you would need to try Microsoft, but don't expect it to be available to download.

This is a common problem with proprietary document formats.

I did see this Apache openoffice page that might help link text

You might be able to open with Microsoft Office and save in a more recent or open format. I think you can get a trial version of Office 365 from Microsoft.

hi there Mark, thanks for answering. I have Office.

  1. Is this link safe? http://microsoft_works.en.downloadast...

  2. If that's not safe, what do I click on in Office to get Works?

Try this link for using office to open works files. I think its for office 2007, but doesn't look like it requires download from internet. link text

Thanks Mark but it's not working. I can't even do the first step because I can't find that icon. I have Windows 10. I rather download, it's too confusing. Can you tell me if this link is safe? That's all I want to know. The link below. Thank you

Sorry, I have no way to confirm if that link is safe. Even if I download and try it without seeing a problem it doesn't mean its safe on your system or sometime in future does something bad.
