Converting Google Documents to a Word Document

This document goes over how to convert a Google document into a .docx document so it can be opened in Word. It should be noted that this will generate a new copy saved to your computer that will open in Word and any changes that are made in Google Docs later will not change the docx version of the document.

  1. Open your Google drive in a web browser.
  2. Locate and open the document that you would like to convert.
  3. At the top left, under the title of the document, go to File > Download > Docx

    Under the title of the document, click File, then Download, and finally Microsoft Word (.docx)

  4. Wait for the file to be downloaded.
  5. Open once finished in Microsoft Word to verify that it converted correctly.
