How to Save as Docx: A Step-by-Step Guide

Saving a file in Microsoft Word doc or docx format can be a challenge for those who do not have the Microsoft Office program. However, it is actually quite easy to rename a file. In this article, we will show you how to save a file as docx.

First, let’s create a file. Assume that we are at the beginning of our paper process. We set up Times New Roman 12-point font for MLA formats and double-checked double spacing. We then inserted page numbers and our last name at the top of the page. As students, we put our heading in the proper places, which includes our name, the professor’s name, the course section number, and the date of submission. We also centered our original title.

Now that we have our file, it is time to save it. The only acceptable files that can be uploaded into the program on canvas are doc and docx files, which are Microsoft Office Word formats. The reason for this is because there’s a speed grader, and it works best with those two file formats. If you give a PDF or an RTF or something else, it’s difficult to grade. Therefore, we’ll save all files as Word docs.

To do this, click on “File” and then “Save As.” Always remember to figure out where exactly your file is going to be located so that you don’t forget. It’s best to put it in your hard drive in your documents folder and always include your name. You can put your last name and then the paper number, for example, “Lastname_Paper1.”

Now, in the “Save as Type” field, you can see various options including PDF, access web page, rick’s, and so on. Choose “More Documents” and save it as a Word document. Then, click on “Save,” and you’re done.

In conclusion, saving a file as docx is simple and requires only a few clicks. By following the steps mentioned above, you can save your files in the appropriate format and make it easy for your professors to grade your work.
