Most PowerPoint users save their presentations in PDF when they need to print or to share a presentation with someone else. That’s why are so popular conversions from PDF to PPT and back to PDF. But sometimes you need to convert PowerPoint to Word and make edits in Microsoft Word. If you need that type of file conversion here are the best ways to convert PowerPoint to Word.

You can use this online PDF creator tool to convert PowerPoint to PDF first and then convert PDF to Word.
