You may often face a necessity to convert your Microsoft Word documents with the .doc or .docx file extensions to the PDF format. There can be different benefits of using PDF files. Documents in this format can be equally viewed and printed on any computer regardless of fonts availability or printer settings. They can also be protected from unwanted access or copying content etc. AVS Document Converter will help you perform the conversion into PDF in a few easy steps.

Step 2: Load your input documents into the program
To load files which you would like to convert click the Add Files button on the top of the program window. In the opened Windows Explorer window select the needed files and press the Open button.
