How to Merge Multiple Screenshots Into One PDF

By Marina Martin

A few well-placed screenshots, which are snapshots of your computer screen at a particular moment in time, can often replace many pages of written instructions. This is especially true when you are describing complex menus or highly visual environments. You can use Microsoft Word to order a group of successive screenshots and publish them to a single PDF that you can then email or post on a website for others to look at.

Step 1

Arrange the windows on your computer screen as you want them to appear in your first screenshot.

Step 2

Press the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard.

Step 3

Open a blank document in Microsoft Word.

Step 4

Click into the document and press "Ctrl" and "V" to paste the screenshot. Repeat this process for each screenshot, pressing the "Enter" key after each image to separate screenshots onto their own lines.

Step 5

Click "File" and choose "Save As."

Step 6

Choose "PDF" in the "Save As Type" drop-down menu.

Step 7

Enter a unique filename for your PDF.

Step 8

Click "Save." You now have a PDF of all your screenshots.
