How to Convert Pages to Word

By Craig Witt

Included in Apple's iWork suite of productivity software, Pages is a word processing and page layout application that allows you to create documents such as letters, resumes, reports, brochures and forms. By default, the program saves your work in a file with a .pages extension that is not compatible with Microsoft Word. However, if you need to share your work with someone who has access only to Word, Pages lets you export the file to Word's native .doc format. This process takes just a few clicks.

Step 1

Click either "File" or "Share" in the top menu bar, and select "Export."

Step 2

Select the "Word" icon and click "Next."

Step 3

Choose your preferred save location, and enter a file name in the "Save As" field.

Step 4

Click "Export." Your Pages file is converted to Microsoft Word .doc format within a few seconds.
