You can open them in Word.

If you send them to the Notepad anyway, then in Word navigate to were you've saved the file, it will be called <filename>.txt it will open it, just make sure 'All files' is selected in the drop down menu file box.

Re-save it as a Word document with your wanted file name <filename>.doc

Just to make it clearer, If you send them to the Notepad anyway, and save it.
