3 Easy Ways to Merge PDF Files into One

Portable Document Format or commonly known as PDF is a file in a format developed by Adobe Systems for the purpose of sending documents digitally. The PDF format will display a 2D file that already includes text, images, or 2D vector graphics.

These days, PDF is a very commonly used file format. Various ebooks and digital documents already use this format. Even various official documents are now starting to switch from word format to PDF format.

Unfortunately, unlike word documents which we can convert easily, PDF documents can only be edited using special software, including to reduce and combine them into one document.

Therefore, this time Cari Signal will review several ways to combine PDF files. Approximately using any method? Can you merge PDF files without software? All the answers are in the following review, yes!

1. How to Merge PDF with Desktop Software

The first way to merge PDF files is to use software which can be downloaded and installed on your computer or PC.

Yes, there are many software free and paid which you can choose to edit and merge PDF files into one as needed. Well, on this occasion, we want to share information about how to combine PDF with software desktops.

For example, we use one of the software which can be downloaded for free via the Microsoft Store. Software it’s called Merge PDF Free. Here are the steps you can follow to merge PDF files:

  1. download application PDF file combiner/editor available on the internet. As we have said, here we will use software Merge PDF Free
  2. Install the app or the program and wait until the installation process is complete
