What is a PDF File?
A PDF file is a multi-platform container file created by a PDF-supported application. It can be Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word, or even the Windows built-in “Print to PDF” feature. PDF files are usually not created from scratch, but rather converted from other formats, such as .DOC or .DOCX. The PDF format makes it easier to combine multiple images and text into a single file which can be opened on almost all operating systems natively.
You could come across PDF files in a variety of contexts, such as when you download a document from a website or get an email with a document in PDF format. Text, pictures, forms, annotations, sketches, and other information relevant to documents could be included in a PDF file. Additionally, they electronically maintain the font and layout across many platforms and display identically on screens as they do when printed out on paper.
