PDF is a file format developed by Adobe that allows documents to retain their look and feel, regardless of the device or software application they are being viewed on. A PDF can contain text, images and vector graphics, videos, audio files and even interactive buttons and hyperlinks. PDF files can be easily accessed, printed and shared online. You can find PDFs on the internet as eBooks, product manuals, brochures and job applications, and you can also create them yourself using a word processor.

To turn a document into pdf, first open the program in which you have the document you want to convert. Most word processing programs have a "Save as" option that will save your document into PDF form. If your document has more than one page, select the option to print multiple pages in a single PDF.

Next, click the "File" menu in the upper-left corner of your screen. This will open a drop-down menu. From the menu, select "Print". This will open the Print window. In the "File to Print" field, enter a name for the new PDF file. If you want to store the file in a specific folder, click a folder in the left sidebar of the window.

Finally, click the "Save as Type" drop-down box. From the list of available types, select PDF (PDF). The file will be saved in the specified location. You can then view the PDF in your web browser or download it to your computer.
