If you have penned down a great sounding report but made the mistake of typing it in the Microsoft Notepad or any other editor that can save the document in only the plain text format and you want to convert it into the PDF format before sending it off to be printed or shared to other co-workers at work, then there is nothing to worry really. There are more than one way to save your TXT files into PDF format in Windows.
If you are using Windows 10, then it already comes with a virtual PDF printer. Using this virtual PDF printer, you can “print” your TXT documents and they will be saved as PDF documents. This is pretty easy to use feature. All you have to do is open the TXT file in Microsoft Notepad and select File → Print from the menubar.
This will open a Print dialog from where you can select Microsoft Print to PDF and click on the Print button. In a few seconds, you will be asked to save the PDF file. You can choose to save the PDF file anywhere on your hard drive and view it using any PDF viewer app.
However, if you are using an older version of Windows, then you can install a third-party PDF printer software such as CutePDF or any other virtual PDF printer. And if you do not have the patience to download and install these PDF printer software in your Windows PC, then you can use a free online converter app such as TXT to PDF Converter which is available from http://www.tradekare.com/.
This web app is the fastest and easiest way to save your TXT files as PDF documents. You can select your TXT files and click on the Convert button. A few seconds later, it will display a download link for your PDF document.
