How to Convert a PDF to Word

I’ve been receiving a lot of requests lately to convert PDF’s to Word Docs. It seems that many people think you need Adobe Pro, or that it's a complicated process. Neither are true; it’s actually pretty quick and easy! So I decided to put together a step by step tutorial, illustrating how you can convert a PDF to Word using Google Drive. 

While you can opt to use one of the many free programs online, you can just as easily make the conversion without any software at all by following this simple method. (If you don’t already have a Google account, it’s free to sign up for one.)

  • Start by signing in to your Google account and then access Google Drive.
  • Click New & choose File Upload from the dropdown menu
Convert PDF to Word
  • Upload your PDF
  • Once your PDF has been added, right click on the file and from the dropdown menu, choose Open with > Google Docs
Convert PDF to Word
  • Once open, go to File > Download as > Microsoft Word (.docx)
Convert PDF to Word

And there you have it! Your PDF will open in Word. Just be sure to save your Word Doc. If you found this post useful, feel free to share on social media via the Share links below!
