How to Convert PDF to Word Document with Google Docs

PDF is a document format invented by Adobe and to unlock its full potential, you may pay at least $14,99 to be able to use Adobe Acrobat Pro. This program lets you do a lot of stuff around the format, including converting a PDF document into a Microsoft Word format (docx).

Fortunately, such capability doesn’t need you to open your wallet. Google Docs in particular can be a good alternative to convert PDF to Word in an instant — and you don’t have to pay a dime for it.

The following guide will teach you how to upload a PDF file to Google Docs and convert it to DOCX. The method is only possible via a desktop device (I tried on Google Docs Android but seems to be absent).

1. First, we need to upload the PDF to Google Drive. Click New > File upload.

As PDF and DOCX are quite different formats, sometimes you need to make an adjustment before downloading the document in a new format. Either way, I hope you find this guide helpful. Thank you for reading.
