How To Convert a PDF Document To Powerpoint

Do you know what PDF stands for? Well, if not, PDF stands for Portable Document Format. PDFs help the user to capture all the aspects of the original document and the user can also easily view the document, navigate through the document, get a print out and also one can share the document with a friend.
