Convert Word to HTML using Microsoft Word

Assuming you’re done typing your work in Microsoft Word and you’ve probably saved it, here’s how to turn it into an HTML file.

  1. Open your work in Microsoft Word, then navigate to the “File” menu > select “Save As” > choose the destination folder and enter the filename
  2. Under the “Save As Type” field, select “Web Page” or “Web Page, Filtered” > Click “Save”.

The difference between the “WebPage” and the “WebPage Filtered” options are that the “WebPage” option saves the style elements of your Microsoft Word document, while the “Webpage Filtered” option doesn’t save any of the style and formattings.
