Opening MYDOCS files

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

What is a MYDOCS file?

Files that contain the .mydocs file extension are most commonly used by the Windows operating system. When a user enables the "Send To: My Documents" feature in the Windows environment by right-clicking on a file or folder on the Windows desktop, the MYDOCS file allows the associated file or folder to be sent to the user's "My Documents" folder.

In some cases a user's MYDOCS file may be missing. If this happens the user will not be able to use the "Send To" feature as described above until the file is replaced. This can be done by opening a blank text file and saving the file as "My Documents.mydocs" in the "C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\SendTo\" folder.

Software that will open, convert or fix MYDOCS 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.
