DOCX offers advantages such as smaller file sizes, improved data recovery, and enhanced compatibility with other programs.
In addition to DOC and DOCX, Word supports other file formats like PDF (Portable Document Format). PDF files are widely used for sharing and publishing documents because they retain the formatting, layout, and fonts of the original document, ensuring consistent viewing across different devices and platforms.
Word also allows saving documents in formats like RTF (Rich Text Format) and TXT (Plain Text). RTF files maintain basic formatting and are compatible with various word processing applications. TXT files store plain text without any formatting and are commonly used for transferring text between different software programs.
