The wks file extension is associated with DeskMate, a software application that provided an operating environment that competed with early versions of Microsoft Windows.

It originally was made for Tandy's TRS-DOS Operating System and for their TRS-80 line of computers, but eventually shifted to PC, where it was developed using C and Assembly.

The wks files contain worksheet used by the application.

This wks file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

Help how to open:

Use DeskMate to open *.wks files.

How to convert:

Probably can be exported to other formats.
