Tip of the Week: Using Microsoft Word to Edit a PDF Document

Tip of the Week: Using Microsoft Word to Edit a PDF Document

In case you’re looking for a nice alternative PDF file-editing software, the most recent version of Microsoft Word can do so. Since the investment for Adobe Acrobat isn’t for everyone, you can instead turn to the tried-and-true all-purpose word processing software to edit your PDF files.

Open the PDF
The first step is to open up your PDF. You can do this by opening up Microsoft Word and selecting Open Other Documents from the menu to your left.


You should see the Open menu. In this, click on Browse.


Another message should appear informing you that Word will convert the PDF to an editable Word document. If you’re fine with this, click on OK.


You should see the PDF open up in Word. Before you can make any edits, you’ll have to disable protected view. Word opens up these documents in protected view because they could potentially be infected with malware or other threats. If you trust this document, you can click on Enable Editing to start making changes.


Once you’ve done this, you’ll get another notification that shows you that Word will convert the PDF into a Word document. Just click on the checkbox or click OK to close this message.


You can now edit your PDF.


After you make your edits, you need to convert it back to a PDF format. You can do this by selecting File > Save As and setting the type to PDF via the dropdown menu under the file name. You should rename the document slightly as well before saving it in a file folder.


Once you’re finished, the edited PDF should open up in your default PDF viewer, whether it’s Microsoft Edge or another program.


What are some other Microsoft Word features that you want us to investigate? Just let us know in the comments.
