How to convert Google Docs to Word format?

I was working on a document in Google Docs on a Chromebook, but I need to send it out in Word format (.docx). How do I convert it?

Instead of saving it as a new file format, you have to DOWNLOAD it as a .docx file. File>Download as>Microsoft Word (.docx). Save it to your Chromebook (or whatever computer you are using), then you can just attach it to your email as a docx file. There is a caveat. While this works, sometimes formatting gets messed up. This doesn’t seem to be nearly as much of an issue as it used to be, but it can still happen.

In both the Web and mobile versions of the Google Docs/Drive apps, there's an export feature that will convert the native Google formats to Microsoft's formats.
