How to Convert a PDF to Word

Tutorial Bite: How to Convert a PDF to a Word Document

In the last tutorial bite, we learned how to convert a Word document to PDF, but what about if you already have a PDF that you need to convert to Word, Excel or PPT?

This is easy when you have software, such as Adobe Acrobat Professional, but it’s just as easy to accomplish with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, which is free software from Adobe.

If you don’t have Adobe Reader DC installed, you can install it here:


  1. Open the PDF file you wish to convert.
  2. Using the options in the tool panel on the right, click the Convert to dropdown to select the file type you want to convert to. By default, Microsoft Word (.docx) is selected.
  3. Click Convert.


You will need to have an Adobe ID. Sign-in or create a new account.


Upon login, your file is instantly converted. A progress bar appears. When complete, click Save As to save your document.
