A Free XLS Viewing And Editing Tool For Windows

The XLS Viewer allows you to open files that were saved with other programs such as files that were saved with Microsoft Excel. The XLS Viewer allows you to view your XLS files (spreadsheet) files without having Microsoft Office installed and you do not have to upload it to online converters. It is a third-party tool that can be installed very quickly.

View And Edit Your XLS Files On Your PC Or Laptop

The program has a spreadsheet interface that is very similar to the Microsoft Excel design except that this program has slightly fewer design flairs. The tool allows you to see to edit load and save XLS files. It has a very small footprint on your CPU (Central Processing Unit) and it downloads and installs very quickly. It works on MS Windows 95/NT/98/Me/2000/XP/Vista. The software also works on Microsoft NET 2.00 or higher and you can get it to work on Windows 10 if you use the backwards compatible troubleshooter that comes with your Windows operating system.

A Superb Spreadsheet Viewer You Can Use On Your Computer

The greatest thing about the XLS Viewer is that you may install it as a tool on your computer so that you do not need Microsoft Office installed to view your spreadsheets nor do you have to upload your sensitive spreadsheet information to a website to convert it. The font options are readable and the fact it looks like Microsoft Excel makes it easier to use if you are already accustomed to Microsoft products.
