How to Convert Vbk to PDF

By Tammy Clevenger

A file with the VBK file extension is likely a proprietary VitalSource BookShelf VitalBook e-book file. Though the e-book program does not provide an conversion capabilities, you can convert the VBK file to a Portable Document Format (PDF) file by first installing a PDF print driver. To install a PDF print driver, install a PDF creation application, such as Adobe Acrobat. Alternatively, use one of the free PDF creation programs, such as doPDF or CutePDF, which also install a virtual PDF printer to the computer. Once the PDF driver is installed, the virtual PDF printer becomes an option in the “Printers” selection box.
