What is an .GDOCX file?
.GDOCX is Google Drive Document
A GDOCX file is a pointer file created by Google Docs, an online document editor included with Google Drive. It contains information that points to the location of a word processing document stored in Google Drive. GDOCX files do not store actual document content, only the location of a word processing document stored in Google Drive.
GDOCX files are similar to shortcut files. When you double-click a GDOCX file, it opens the actual word processing document stored in Google Drive.
Google Drive is a file storage service that can be downloaded and installed in Windows or macOS as a desktop client for synchronizing remote Google Drive files with a local computer. If you install the Google Drive desktop client, your Google Docs documents are accessible within a special folder named Google Drive, which is on the local hard drive. This folder is used to synchronize files with the remote Google Drive. When you double-click a GDOCX file, the document is opened in Google Drive in your default web browser.
NOTE: GDOCX files are more commonly seen as .GDOC files.
