Exporting a PDF to a Word Document in Adobe Acrobat

By

PDFs have become a common way to share documents. But, many people don't want to edit files in Adobe Acrobat. They'd rather work directly in a Word file.

You can cut and paste the contents of a PDF file into a Word document. But, there is a better way: You can convert a PDF file to a Word document using Adobe Acrobat.

To convert a PDF file to Word, simply follow these easy steps:

1. Click File>>Open

2. Navigate to your PDF file and select it

3. Click Open

4. Your PDF file opens in Acrobat

5. Click File>>Export>>Word Document

6. Name your new Word file

7. Click Save

Exporting a PDF to Word does not alter your PDF file. It will remain in its original format on your hard drive.
