Save a Word or Excel file as a PDF

Posted on April 18, 2013

One great but often little known feature in the latest versions of Office is the ability to save a Word document or Excel spreadsheet as a PDF file.

To save your document or spreadsheet as a PDF:

1. Click on File:

 

2. Click on Save As:

 

3. In the Save As window, click on the Save as type box, and select PDF from the drop-down menu:

 

4. Ensure you select the desired location where you wish to save your PDF

 

5. Click on Save:

 
When finished, your newly created PDF will automatically open for review

That’s all there is to saving a document or spreadsheet without having to install any additional software or tools.
