Write document (Windows Write)
The WRI file extension was used with Microsoft Write, an early word processing application that was bundled with Microsoft Windows 1.0 through 3.x. With the release of Windows 95, Microsoft Write became WordPad, a basic word processor more advanced than its predecessor, NotePad, but still simpler than Microsoft Works and Word.
WordPad can still open WRI files, although Microsoft does not officially support the format anymore. Corel WordPerfect Office X5 can also open WRI files.
MIME type: application/x-wri, application/x-mswrite, application/wri, application/mswrite
