How To Open DOCX Files
DOCX is a file extension for Microsoft Word Open XML format documents. The file extension you would see after your file name is .docx. If you have Microsoft Word already installed on your computer, your DOCX file should open automatically.
If you do not have access to Microsoft Word, don’t worry. There are several free word processor programs, like OpenOffice Writer and AbiWord, that can open DOCX files. See the instructions below to install a free word processor and use it to open your DOCX files.
Once your word processor is installed, open the program for use.
Click File > Open.
Select the DOCX file you wish to open.
Read and/or edit the file. If you make changes to the file, don’t forget to save your changes by clicking File > Save.
