Microsoft Word (popular word processing software) file with document text, graphics, formatting, styles, drawn elements and other document preferences. It is usually used for authoring in business and academic settings. In contrast to DOC files that save document information in a single binary file, DOCX files use the Open XML format that saves documents as a collection of separate files and folders in a compressed ZIP archive. This package includes XML files and three folders - docProps, Word and _rels containing settings, content and relationships between the files. DOCX files are designed for making document contents accessible. MS Word 2007 or newer versions for Windows and Word 2008 or newer versions for Mac OS can be used to open DOCX files. You can change file's extension from ".docx" to ".zip" and decompress it using any ZIP-compatible decompression utility to view the file's contents.
