Depending on your browser settings, the file will either download automatically or you'll be prompted to choose a download location.

How to Convert Google Form to Excel Sheet

To convert Google Forms data to an Excel sheet, begin by navigating to the 'Responses' tab of your form. Click on the green spreadsheet icon labeled 'Link to Google Sheets' to create a new Google Sheets spreadsheet populated with the form responses. Open this linked Google Sheet, then go to 'File' > 'Download' and select 'Microsoft Excel (.xlsx)' to download the spreadsheet in Excel format.
