Do you want to learn a magic trick?
In less than a minute you can convert word or PDF documents to another format that is more usable to you. Let's say you received an email with a .docx extension but you don't have the Microsoft Office 2007 compatibility pack installed on your PC and you'reusing an older version of Microsoft Office, or you have a word document you want to convert to a PDF file but don't have a PDF creator installed on your PC. What can you do that doesn't require you to figure out what software you need to download and install? You can use Zamzar! It's a website that takes your files, converts them to the format you desire, and emails it back to you in under a minute for free. It's not just for document conversions either: you can convert image and music files too.
Zamzar is easy to use.
- Select the file or files you wish to convert.
- Select the format you want it converted to.
- Enter your email address.
- Click convert.
- Check your email to retrieve your converted file.
