To save a Google Doc as a Word Doc:
- Go to File.
- Select Download.
- Choose Microsoft Word (.docx).
You will be prompted to either open the new Word document or save it to a location on your computer.
You should be able to open and view your new Word file in Microsoft Word. You'll still have the original Google Doc saved in Google Docs, as well.
You may need to make some edits in the event that the formatting got messed up. Also, be sure to save your new Word file once you've edited it.
