What is a WRI File Type?

The main file associated with Microsoft Write was the WRI file. When Write was replaced by WordPad and fewer users created and shared WRI files, however, support for the format dropped sharply.

WRI files are currently rarely used to save text documents. But if you find an old WRI file or if someone shares a WRI file with you, there are several programs available, including a free option in FreeOffice.
