A .pdf file is a document saved in the Portable Document Format (PDF). PDF files often contain reports, billing statements, newsletters, brochures, and other types of formatted documents. Most web browsers, email programs, and document viewers can open PDF files. For that reason, people, businesses, and organizations frequently send important documents as PDFs.

While you can open a PDF file with many programs, you typically won't be able to edit it. If you want to edit the document a PDF file contains, you can convert it to the Microsoft Word document (.docx) format. You'll then be able to edit the document with Microsoft Word (or any other program that supports DOCX files). You may also want to convert PDF files to the PowerPoint Presentation (.pptx), Excel Spreadsheet (.xlsx), JPEG (.jpg), or HTML (.html) format.
