A PDF file is a popular Internet document. You can read information about products, guidelines or other facts on PDFs. However, without Adobe Reader or a PDF editing program, you cannot view or change the document on your PC. Most computers have Microsoft Word installed. Thus, reading and editing a PDF through Word is a common practice. Free PDF to Word Converter and Some PDF to Word Converter (see Resources) are free applications you can download that allow you to change a PDF to a Word Document.
