Question: What Is a 'PDF' File? How Do I Use PDF Files?
Answer: A 'PDF' file is a special type of universal document format that is designed to distribute official documents online. Named for being 'portable document format', a PDF file preserves the margins, fonts, page breaks, and formatting of an official document so that it prints identically on any kind of printer or computer.
