With the release of Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft introduced a file format called XPS. It is similar to PDF in that you can save a file to this format and share or print it at a later date. This XPS format is not the global standard, and not many people know what it is when they receive it. Fortunately, Microsoft has released a download that now gives you the choice to save your document as a PDF or XPS file.

Believe it or not Microsoft listens to our feedback.

Now that you have installed your software, open a Microsoft Word document and click Save As PDF Or XPS, as shown in Figure A and Figure B.
