I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.

It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.

I use Zamar whenever I need to convert audio and video files from multiple submitters to 1 uniform file format for Audio and Video Editing. I can do multiple large files in a short amount of time.

Christopher Bee

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.

Sabina Calis

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.

DOCX Document Format

DOCX Converter

DOCX is a Word Document file type developed by Microsoft as part of Office 2007. In 2007 the big change to Word (and other programs) was the introduction of Office Open XML file formats as the default file formats for Excel, PowerPoint and Word. The idea was to help users share information between programs more easily and combat the increasingly large file sizes of previous versions of Office.

According to Microsoft files are 75% smaller if saved in this new format as DOC files are stored in a single binary, whereas DOCX files are saved as multiple compressed files in the Open XML format. This development meant DOCX become the new default file extension for a Word Document but these files often could not be opened in previous versions of Office. Users can now open DOCX files with Office365.

DOC Document Format

DOC Converter

A DOC file is also known as a Word Processing file format. It was originally made popular by Microsoft as part of their Microsoft Office suite. It’s use grew wider when Apple and others also bundled it into their OS.

If you’ve used a computer then chances are you’ve created and edited a DOC file. DOC files are primarily used to format text but users are also able to include images, charts and other non text features. Users will use the DOC format to write essays, resumes, letters and almost anything that needs to be typed out. DOC files are easily printed and are small in size so often are shared via email.

Almost all programs can open DOC files in some form even if some of the formatting/quality can be lost. Microsoft Word can be used on a variety of devices and operating systems and with each new release of Microsoft Office the DOC file seems to become more and more feature heavy whilst retaining its core purpose.

Frequently asked questions

If you’ve got any questions about converting or compressing files with Zamzar, we’re happy to help! We’ve answered a few commonly-asked questions below, to get you started, and you can find out more information about file conversion and compression with Zamzar, in our Help centre.

You can convert a DOCX file to DOC by opening the DOCX file in Microsoft Word, clicking the ‘File’ tab and ‘Save As’, then selecting ‘.doc’ format from the ‘File Format’ dropdown menu. If you don’t have Microsoft Word, you can use Zamzar’s free converter to easily convert your file to DOC. Zamzar is a simple, quick and efficient online conversion tool, supporting over 1200 file formats. If you have multiple DOCX files to convert, then Zamzar will be a much quicker option than converting the files manually in Microsoft Word.

You can convert a DOCX file to DOC for free using Zamzar’s online conversion tool. Our free converter allows you to convert a small number of files per 24 hours for free, provided your files are within our size limits. The simple three-step process means you can get your DOC files in just a few clicks.

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.
