File Extension PDF

File type: Portable Document Format File

About the PDF file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

The PDF file extension is used in the cross-platform documents created using the Adobe Acrobat software or any program that comes with the Acrobat plug-in. This file extension is also used for files that serve as email attachments or for saving programs and applications using a standard format so as for the applications to be viewed easily on multiple computers. The files containing the PDF file extension are created usually from a different document rather than creating these files from a scratch.
