How to save a Microsoft Word document as a PDF

  1. Click the File tab in the top-left corner of your Word screen.

  2. Click Export in the blue vertical menu along the left side of your screen.
  3. With the Create XPS/PDF Document option selected, click the corresponding box on the right side of your screen.
  4. A new box labelled Publish as PDF or XPS appears, and you should use it to navigate to the location on your PC where you want to save the new PDF.

You might view a How do you want to open this file? pop-up box. By default, Windows will use the Edge browser but you can choose from other compatible browser apps installed on your PC, as well.
