Works Document Viewer for Mac

Finally, you can view those Microsoft Works email attachments without having to ask a friend to borrow their Windows laptop!

What it Does

Works Viewer converts Microsoft Works document files to a format that your Mac can read.

Works Viewer allows you to view documents created with Microsoft's Works for Windows; select and copy text from the document; or export the document into formats that can be read and easily exported to other programs. Once you've exported your Works document, you can edit the results in your word processor of choice.

What formats does Works Viewer export?

  • Rich Text (RTF)

  • Plain Text (TXT)

  • Microsoft Word (DOC, DOCX)

  • Portable Document Format (PDF)

What versions of Mac OS-X does Works Viewer work with?

OS-X Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite, and beyond.

Works Viewer is compatible with Mac OS-X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard), Mac OS-X 10.7 (Lion), Mac OS-X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and Mac OS-X 10.9 (Mavericks).

Did you know? The Mac App Store will not let you purchase software that is not compatible with your Operating System.

Does Works Viewer support documents created in Microsoft Works for Mac?

Not at this time.

What do the converted documents look like?

Check out our samples, below.

Works Viewer preserves your text and document formatting; however, to aid you in exporting your document to your Mac word processor of choice, Works Viewer will automatically remove page breaks, metadata, columns, margins, headers and footers. (If these are important to you, you'll need to use the export function in Microsoft Works for Windows).

Where can I get it?

Works Viewer can be purchased exclusively through the Mac App Store. You can find the App Store product page for Works Viewer right here. For more information on the Mac App Store, please see here.
