XPS files can be opened by XPS Viewer, which is installed by default in the latest versions of Windows including Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10. You can install the XPS Essentials Pack to open XPS files if you're still using Windows XP.
2JPEG works under 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. It supports Microsoft Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012, 2016 and later versions.
The XPS format (*.XPS; OpenXPS *.OXPS) was created by Microsoft as an alternative to PDF. It is now much less popular than PDF, but some companies still use it, and the latest versions of Windows continue to include better support for XPS files than PDF files. This file format represents a document with fixed layout, keeping all the elements and the structure of the document intact. XPS format also supports features that you’d find in PDF format, such as digital signatures and digital rights management (DRM).
In addition to batch conversion via command line there's a few other ways to do it. You can do it automatically, offline or online, via desktop software, via a virtual printer, or even from your own software or script file. Learn about different ways to convert XPS to JPG in our blog!
