Open the Microsoft Word 2010 application on your computer. Click on the "File" tab, then select "Open." The following dialog box will open:

Please take note, that after the "File Name" text box, the "All Files (*.*) for file type must be selected. Then, browse to where your document is stored, select it, and click the "Open" button. Your document should then open in Word 2010.

You can also try, a free and simple online file converter that works with a wide range of file types. It will convert any document, archive file, spreadsheet, audio and video file from one format to another.
