How to Convert a Word Document to PDF

There are several software formats in which you can write, store and edit texts in a computer. Two of the most commonly used file formats are PDF and Word. The difference between a Word (Doc) and Adobe (PDF) file is that the latter cannot be edited for free like the former.

PDF is an acronym that stands for “Portable Document Format.” It was created to save files that do not require modification, yet they can be distributed, shared and printed easily.

Sometimes teachers and instructors may require their students to submit electronic assignments using PDF rather than Word documents. In this case, you will find it suitable to convert word document into PDF. Follow the following steps to do so.
