    PDF to XPS Conversion

    A PDF is the world’s most popular document file type. It acts as a snapshot of a document, whether it was created using a word processor or a scan of a physical piece of paper. PDFs are widely supported by default across all major operating systems, including Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, and more.

    An XPS is a lot like a PDF. However, Microsoft created the XPS format whereas Adobe created the PDF format. Essentially, the XPS was Microsoft’s attempt to rival the PDF, although it didn’t win that battle. Today, most everyone knows and understands what a PDF is, but a comparative few are familiar with XPS files.

    Why should you convert PDF to XPS?

    The main reason one would want to convert PDF to XPS is for better support within an XPS reader, such as Microsoft’s XPS Viewer software. XPS Viewer is available with all Windows installs. On Windows 8.1 and earlier, the software is installed and on by default. In Windows 10 and 11, the XPS viewer is included but not installed by default.

    Either way, if you are more familiar with working with XPS files instead of PDF files, converting PDF to XPS might be useful.

    How to convert PDF files to XPS for free?

    Using the free conversion tool on this page, you can convert PDF to XPS in just a few seconds. There is no registration, you don’t need to give us your email, there are no watermarks, and you can use the service as much as you wish.

    To begin, you’ll first upload one or up to 20 PDFs. You can do this by dragging and dropping your files onto the “Drop Your Files Here” field or by hitting the “UPLOAD FILES” button.

    If you have more than 20 files, our server will be able to handle them all. However, you must limit your uploads to 20 at one time.

    As soon as your files are uploaded, our server will get to work converting them. You can see a progress bar on the document’s thumbnail as it moves from PDF to XPS in real time. Once it’s finished, you can hit the “DOWNLOAD” button that appears there. This will download your new XPS file.

    However, if you uploaded more than one PDF, you should wait until all the conversions are complete. Once done, you can hit the “DOWNLOAD ALL” button to grab a ZIP archive containing all your converted files.

    Once you’ve converted your documents and downloaded them, you can hit the “CLEAR QUEUE” button to start a new batch. Remember: you can upload as many batches of 20 as you need and all conversions will be free.

    Converting PDF to XPS: Is it safe?

    You might be concerned about the safety and security of using this conversion tool. We assure you that it is perfectly safe. Our server is unmanned and it purges all uploads and conversions after one hour. This ensures your privacy.

    Likewise, our server will keep your original files safe. When you upload a file, it doesn’t upload the master file but a copy instead. The server converts this copied PDF to XPS while leaving the master file untouched on your computer or mobile phone. This means that if you are unhappy with the converted file, you can always fall back on your original.
