How to Convert Png Files to Docx File

A .PNG (Portable Network Graphic) file is a high-resolution image file that compresses more effectively than other image file types and supports image transparency. A .DOCX file is a Microsoft Word 2007 or later text file that can also contain images. Converting a .PNG file into a .DOCX requires just a few steps in Microsoft Word.
