Microsoft Word has been an ideal productivity tool to help you create digital documents for any type of content you have. However, it can do more than help you put your content together.

Microsoft Word gives you a quick and easy way to create a document and convert it to PDF. You don’t even need to install any PDF conversion program to save DOCX as PDF! 

  • Yet, what do you do when you have Microsoft Word installed?
  • What if you can’t open DOCX files on the device you’re using?
  • How do you convert it to the PDF format? 

Fortunately, there’s a simple and easy way to open DOCX without MS Office and generate a PDF from your Word document.
