PDFs are a great file format to use when you want a document that will look the same across most computers, or when you are delivering a final version of a document that you would like to be read-only.
First of all, you’ll want to open your Word document. Then click File, choose Export from the list on the left and side and click Create PDF/XPS Document.
A publishing window will then pop up allowing you to pick a location to save the document.
You can select a custom page range to save or remove document properties if you want to. You can do this by clicking the Options button above the Publish button.
When you’re done, click Publish.
If you’re using an older version of Word, go File > Save As and select PDF as the file format from the drop-down list.
