With the free PDF24 PDF printer you can create PDF files out of any application which has a print option. The PDF24 Creator installs for you a virtual PDF printer which you can use like any other printer. If you print on that printer, PDF24 creates a PDF for you. The PDF printer behaves like a normal printer in Windows.
Using a PDF printer to create PDF files is quite good, because the printer is available in all applications which have a print option. Just click the "print" button in your application and choose the special PDF24 PDF printer to create a PDF file.
If you write something in Word you can then print on the PDF printer instead of printing on a normal printer. Choose the PDF24 PDF printer, print the document in Word, and after that you will have a PDF file of your Word document.
It's always a good choice to share the PDF file instead of the Word file because the PDF file looks identical on all devices and that's what the PDF file was made for. With the PDF24 PDF printer you can create PDF files from any printable document.
