If you have older files on your computer, they may be outdated file types such as DOC files; rather than modern DOCX files. If this is the case, you may have had difficulty reading or opening these files as some newer computers are not capable of processing these types of documents. If you run across this problem when trying to open files that were saved under older file types, you may find it necessary to convert these files to modern DOCX files. However, this process can be confusing if you have never tried to convert your files. To help you with this process, here are the easiest ways to convert files to DOCX.
The easiest way to convert old files to DOCX is by saving the file as another format. Simply open the file using its default program. Next, click on save and when the save box opens you will see a tab that says “save as type” under where you see the files name. Click the drop-down menu, and you will be able to save the document as a DOCX file.
It is often not that easy to convert older files to DOCX though. Often times people run across the problem that they are not able to open an older file because their computer does not have the ability to open it. In this case, you will need to download a program that will convert the files you cannot open to DOCX, which will then give you the ability to view these files.
