Opening EDOC files

Did your computer fail to open an EDOC file? We explain what EDOC files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your EDOC files.

What is an EDOC file?

The .edoc file extension is basically a file format that can be found in various document files. EDOC stands for 'Electronically certified Documents'. The .edoc file extension is used in files that are digitally signed and carries metadata certificate. The .edoc files are originally from more common files like files with .doc, .txt, .pdf, and .xlsx extensions.

It is possible that some .edoc files are just simple .doc files that are digitally signed. Users can open the .edoc files using Microsoft Word and save it as a new file in a more common file format. Users can also use Notepad or .pdf reader programs to open the said files and export it to other file types. EDOC files sometimes contain one or more kinds of files so scanning them first before opening should be a precursor.

Software that will open, convert or fix EDOC files

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
