To convert a PDF file to Word format, open the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat, go to Tools, hover the mouse cursor over Content Editing, and then select Convert File to Microsoft Word Document. For this to work, you need to use the paid version of Adobe Acrobat.
Select a name for the new Word document, choose a location for the document, and then click Save. However, if the PDF file contains scanned text rather than text you can highlight and copy, go to Settings and turn off Optical Character Recognition to skip over the scanned text. Adobe Acrobat comes with a 30-day trial that you can use to convert the PDF file to Word document without payment, as of 2015.
If you need to convert multiple PDF files to Word documents without downloading any software, use online file-conversion tools such as Docs.zone. Click the PDF to Word link on the top menu of the website, and then click the Select Files button that has a plus sign on it. Select the PDF file from your computer, and then click Open. On the new window, select a conversion mode, and then click Start to begin the conversion process. Click on the Download link to download the new Microsoft Word document.
