Convert a PDF to Word, Excel or PowerPoint

I have used, and really like, NitroCloud to convert a PDF to either Word, Excel or PowerPoint. The great thing is that this is done strictly on the web and does NOT require you to add a program or app to your PC. Oh, and it's FREE! 

First, most folk screate a PDF file (Portable Document Format from Adobe) so the file cannot be altered and this is a good thing. However, some may have a legitimate reason or need to edit a PDF file. If this is the case, read further.


There are only 3 steps so it is quite easy. No technical experience required. Create a FREE account to begin. To be clear, this is a FREE service if you don't need to do this very often. The FREE account allows you to convert up to 5 documents in a month and no larger than a 50 megabyte document. This works perfectly for most of us. If you will need this service more often, check out the various types of accounts to pay for.

  1. Choose PDF and then the file type you desire to convert to. Example: PDF to Word
  2. Select the file
  3. Enter the e-mail address you would like the converted file sent to

It only takes about 30 seconds to get the email to receive your newly converted file.

Again, you can convert to Word, Excel or PowerPoint.

A pretty nifty utility whenyou need it.
