About HTML Files

.html Icon

An .html file is a webpage written in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). The HTML in the file defines the layout and elements of a webpage displayed by a web browser, such as Google Chrome or Apple Safari. Primarily web developers work with .html files, while average Internet users seldom encounter them unless they save a webpage to their device via a web browser.

Typically, you will not want to convert an .html file to another format. For example, if you are a web developer, you will likely upload the file to a web server, which a browser renders to display to the end user. Additionally, if you are an average Internet user, you can open the .html file with a web browser, which renders it to display the webpage. However, if you want to open the .html file as a plain text document, you can convert it to a .txt file. You may also want to convert it to a PDF (.pdf) or Word (.docx) document to view it as a webpage. In this case, the resulting file will store the HTML text instead of a visual of the webpage as a web browser would display it.
