How to move your documents to PDF totally free

If we have a document and we want to pass it to PDF to send it to someone, we can do it in different ways. Using Windows, our Mac system, or using tools for third parties that also perform such an action. Let's see how it's done.

When we have any type of document, we will always have many options when it comes to converting it into a PDF. We are presented with those that are already pre-installed, but we also have others in which we have to be the ones who use certain tools.

We are talking about any type of document, whether it is a simple photo or writing, practically everything we can convert.

We will see a few ways to achieve it, so that after you decide for yourself which is the one that best suits your needs and tastes.

PDF printing on Windows 10

When we want to pass some type of document or photo to PDF, we always think of some tools that can serve us for this need, forgetting that Windows offers us this possibility very close and in a much simpler way than you can imagine.

We only need to follow a few simple steps to achieve this:

  • We open the document or photo in any program we want. If it is a photo we can subtilize the Windows viewer, for example.
  • Once we have it open on the screen, we must go to the print section of the program or viewer.
  • When we think about the possibilities of printing, let's open the drop-down and select Microsoft Print To PDF.
  • Now click on Print and then it will ask us where we want to save the PDF you are going to create.
  • Microsoft Print To PDF
    • Click on Save and we will automatically have in that path that same document but in PDF format.

    PDF printing on Mac

    If you have a Mac computer you will be able to perform this same action in a very similar way and managing to convert what you want into a PDF file.

    The steps we must follow are as follows:

    • We open the program with which we want to read the document that we are going to convert later into PDF.
    • Then click on Print within that tool, so that the corresponding print menu appears.
    • Once inside this menu, we will see how in the bottom left we can select PDF and open a drop-down where we will have several options dedicated to this format.
    • We must choose Save to PDF.
    Save PDF on Mac
    • At that moment it will ask us the path where we want the resulting file to be and automatically we will have it in PDF format where we have recorded it.

Online tools

On the net, there are a few websites that will allow us to pass all kinds of documents to PDF format easily, and free of charge.

Let's look at some of these possibilities that exist on the Internet for such a purpose.
