Unfortunately, you cannot open or change a PDF file directly in Microsoft’s word processing software. The only way you can make this work is if you first convert your PDF to DOCX with the help of our online converter or PDF Extra Desktop.
By using a quality converter! Unlike most free online tools which often reduce the quality and break the formatting of the converted file, PDF Extra Desktop’s converter ensures that your Word file's formatting and layout will be just like that of the original PDF.
PDF Extra for iOS and Android turns your everyday camera into a professional scanner, allowing you to easily digitize your paperwork into an editable DOCX file on the go.
We’ve taken all measures to make our online converter as safe as possible by deleting your private data the moment you download your converted file. If you’re dealing with especially sensitive files, as an extra precaution you can use PDF Extra Desktop’s advanced security features to ensure that nobody will be able to access your files.
If you’re using our web converter, you may have uploaded a file larger than 10 MB. If that’s the case, try compressing it first before reuploading it. If you want to convert a file from PDF to Word on Windows, check if the file you want to convert ends in .docx or .pdf as you may have accidentally loaded an unsupported file.
