If you need to save a Word document as a webpage, your best bet is to use the Web Page, Filtered option.

When you save your document as a filtered webpage, Word keeps only the content, style instructions, and some other information. The file is small, without a lot of extra code.

  1. Click File > Save As and choose the location where you want to save your document.

  2. Name your file.

  3. In the Save as type list, choose Web Page, Filtered.

The Save As dialog box with Web Page, Filtered selected

  1. Click Change Title and type the title you want to display in a web browser’s title bar.

  2. Click Save.


To save document properties and more Word information with the webpage, choose the Single File Web Page type. But your file will be larger—almost 10 times larger.

To save pictures in a separate folder from the text part of the webpage, choose the Web Page type. When you post the webpage to a website, post the pictures folder, too.

To see the webpage’s HTML code, browse to the file in Windows Explorer, right-click the file, point to Open with, and click Internet Explorer. Then right-click the page in Internet Explorer and click View Source.

Other ways to share a document online

Word was originally designed to create and print documents. In Word 2013, you now have other options for sharing your thoughts and your work online.

Save a document as a blog post
