Hi,

Why do you want to convert WordPad file to Microsoft Word file? When you save a WordPad file it will be save into .rtf file format by default, which is supported by MS Word. So according to me you don’t need to convert WordPad file into Word file format. Despite that if, you want to convert .rtf file format to .docx file format, then simply open .rtf file by double clicking on it. It normally opens with MS Word. After that, choose Save As option to save it into .docx file format. I hope it will be helpful for you.

Thanks & Regards

    You should be able to open it in Word, The you can click file, save as, and save it as a new format.

    Basically, wordpad file extension is .rtf which is highly acceptable in MS Word. So, is it really needed to convert the same in MS Word file type like .doc/docx. If your purpose is solved without converting it, then why did you try the same!  Or simply copy the whole matter of wordpad and paste on word then save as its desired format.

    I think the only reason Wordpad is still around is for the people who do not have Office. Not everyone can afford it for home use, so this is a viable alternative that is still compatible. Any Word user should be able to open the file with no problem. Was there a specific reason for wanting to convert it?
