Have you encountered a problem with a DOCHTML file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a DOCHTML file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your DOCHTML file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


Files ending in DOCHTML are HTML files created by previous versions of Microsoft Word. Word, Microsoft Corporation's standard text processing, usually stores documents as doc or docx files. To view his documents in a browser, the user can save his document as a DOCHTML file.

This file then contains normal HTML source code similar to an html file. The source code is designed in such a way that the browser displays the document as much as Word.

The DOCHTML format is no longer supported by Microsoft. Documents that should be published on the Web should therefore be saved as an mhtml or mht file.

Newer versions of Microsoft Word save HTML code as an html file.

How to open a DOCHTML file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the DOCHTML file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a DOCHTML file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support DOCHTML files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a DOCHTML file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all DOCHTML files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with DOCHTML there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the DOCHTML file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the DOCHTML file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
