Documents or files created with Microsoft Office for Mac are basically compatible with Microsoft Office for Windows. Both are Microsoft products and, usually, you just double-click on the Microsoft Office for Mac file to open it in Microsoft Office for Windows. But there are times the document from a Macintosh computer does not open in Microsoft Windows.

If this happens, you just have to save the file in a format compatible with Microsoft Office Word for Windows. You can save the file in “Rich Text Format” and your file should open easily in Microsoft Windows. To do this, on your Mac, start Microsoft Office Word then open the document you want. Once the file is opened, click “File” then select “Save As”.

In the Save As dialog, scroll down and look for “Rich Text Format (*.rtf)” from the “Save as type” dropdown list. Click “Save” to save the file. Now, copy the file to a Windows computer. On the Windows computer, right-click the RTF file you copied then point to “Open With” and select “Microsoft Office Word”. And that’s it.
