How to edit PDFs in Word

Microsoft Word is a word-processing program that enables the creation and editing of simple and complex documents. 

Follow the steps below to edit PDFs in Word.

Step #1. Launch Microsoft Word on your PC and go to File › Open

Open Microsoft Word on your PC. Once logged in, choose any file; it can be in PDF format or an editable Word document.

Note👀: If you downloaded the PDF file from the web, it'll usually be in your downloads folder. 

Step #2. Click OK to open the file

When you open a PDF, Word must convert it to a format it can display. This might take a few moments or longer, depending on the PDF’s size.

You'll get a notification when PDFs need to be converted. Choose the editable option once the notification pops up – click OK.

Step #3. Edit text

You can edit text on any page of the PDF file in Word. With the Home tab, you can choose from text editing and formatting options.

Step #4. Edit Graphics 

If you want to add images or charts to your file, click the Insert tab. You can also remove the existing graphics for easier reading and printing or move them to other sections.

  • To add an image, click the Insert menu, select Pictures, and then choose the location of the image you want to add. Please select the image and choose Open to place it in the document.
  • To move an image, click and drag it to the desired position.
  • To delete an image, click it once to select it, and then press delete or delete on your keyboard.
