There are two ways to convert a document to the PDF format:
‘Save As’ to save a version of the original document to a different format. Modern Office lets you make a PDF directly. This choice is sometimes called ‘Export’ or ‘Convert’.
‘Print’ which intercepts the printer output from a program to make a PDF file. Instead of a paper page coming out – a PDF file is created which looks like the paper pages. Both Windows and Mac have in-built options to do this from any program, not just Office.
The Exchange Team didn’t go into many details about the new Office release, unfortunately. In fact, they only mentioned it in a single line, which reads as follows: “Microsoft Office will also see a new perpetual release for both Windows and Mac, in the second half of 2021.”
Anyone who’s ever tried to download one of these ISO’s knows it isn’t always easy to find. This portable app solves that problem. It is tiny and does require the .NET Framework to be installed. It is effortless and straightforward to use. Just select 7, 8.1, or 10 from the right, then which edition and download the 32 or 64-bit edition. Optionally you can also copy the link.
