Have you encountered a problem with a DOCMHTML 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 DOCMHTML file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your DOCMHTML file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


Files ending in DOCMHTML are MIME HTML files created by earlier versions of Microsoft Word. Among other things, these files contain HTML source code similar to an html file. The source code is created in such a way that the browser displays a doc or docx document as similar as possible to Word. Docmhtml files may also contain other resources such as images or audio files.

The DOCMHTML 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.

Mozilla Firefox needs to display a MHT plugin.

How to open a DOCMHTML file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the DOCMHTML 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 DOCMHTML 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 DOCMHTML files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a DOCMHTML file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all DOCMHTML files.

Other issues

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

- verify that the DOCMHTML 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 DOCMHTML 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.
