What you need to convert a DOCX file to a PDF file or how you can create a PDF version from your DOCX file

Files of the type DOCX or files with the file extension .docx can be easily converted to PDF with the help of a PDF printer.

A PDF printer is a virtual printer which you can use like any other printer. The difference to a normal printer is that a PDF printer creates PDF files. You do not print on physical paper. The PDF printer prints the contents of the source file into a PDF file.

In this way, you can create a PDF version from any file which can be printed. Just open the file with a reader, click the "print" button, choose the virtual PDF printer and click "print". If you have a reader for the DOCX file, and if the reader can print the file, then you can convert the file to a PDF.

The FREE and easy to use PDF24 PDF printer can be downloaded from this page. Just click on the "download" button to the right of this article to download the PDF24 Creator. Install this software. After the installation you will have a new printer device registered in your Windows system which you can use to create a PDF file from your .docx file or to convert any other printable file to a PDF.

Here’s how it works:
  • Open your .docx file with a reader which can open the file.
  • Print the file on the virtual PDF24 PDF printer.
  • The PDF24 assistant opens, where you can save as a PDF, email, fax, or edit the new file.
