DOCX Document Format DOCX Converter
The DOCX format has been the standard format for Microsoft Word documents since 2007, replacing DOC. Microsoft Word is used widely in homes, workplaces and educational settings to create formatted text documents like reports, letters or resumes. As well as text, DOCX files can include pictures, tables, charts and embedded media, or can be an editable template.
The DOCX format has some advantages over DOC, including typically smaller file sizes and better security. DOCX is an Office Open XML file, making it easier to open DOCX files in other programs like LibreOffice, Google Docs or Apple Pages, with fewer compatibility issues. Word is part of Microsoft Office’s paid software application and is also available with an Office 365 online subscription. Microsoft Office was designed for Windows, but you can install Office apps on other operating systems. Microsoft also has a basic free ‘Word for the web’ programme for online Microsoft account holders.
DOC Document Format DOC Converter
DOC and DOCX are the most common word processing file formats. DOC was primarily used by Microsoft for its Word program until 2003. Since 2007, Word has used DOCX as standard, although you can still open DOC files and can still save to the older format. DOC and DOCX are used for formatted text documents like reports, letters or resumes. They can include pictures, charts, and graphs, as well as plain or formatted text, and can also contain an editable template.
Word is part of Microsoft Office, which is available as a paid software application or accessed online with a Microsoft 365 subscription. Microsoft Office was designed for the Windows operating system, but you can also install Office apps on other operating systems like Apple’s macOS and Google’s ChromeOS. A basic free ‘Word for the web’ program is also available online for Microsoft account holders. DOC files are easy to share and print, and can be opened by most word processing programs, including LibreOffice, Apple Pages, and Google Docs, as well as by Microsoft Word.

DOC and DOCX are similar formats but they are not the same. DOCX is the new default extension for opening files in Microsoft Word from 2007 onward. It’s based on XML and so isn’t compatible with older versions of Microsoft Word. DOC files are the default extension for Microsoft Word 2003 and older. You can easily convert a DOCX file to DOC, or vice versa, using the free conversion tool on Zamzar’s website.
DOCX files are easier to open and transfer, due to their smaller size. These files tend to be easier to repair if damaged, making DOCX the better choice between DOC or DOCX. If you have Microsoft Word 2006 or older, you should be able to open DOC files with no problem but you may have issues with compatibility if trying to open or view DOCX files. However, you can easily use an online conversion tool, such as Zamzar, to convert your DOCX files to DOC so you can open them with your older version of Word.
To convert DOCX to DOC on a Mac, simply open your DOCX file with Microsoft Word, click on the ‘File’ tab in the menu bar, click ‘Save As’, and select the ‘.doc’ option from the ‘File Format’ dropdown menu in the dialog box that opens. Once you’ve selected the right format, you can save the file to a location of your choice on your device. If you don't have access to Microsoft Word, or you have multiple files to convert, then a web-based solution, like Zamzar’s conversion tool, may be a better option. This online tool allows you to quickly convert your files in just a few clicks.
