How to Edit a Saved PDF

In order to edit a saved PDF, you’ll need to make sure that you have proper software downloaded. Many computers come with some type of software, but are programmed to open a PDF in a browser like Chrome, Edge, or Safari.

To check and make sure that you don’t already have software that will allow you to edit a PDF, right-click on the document in its saved location. On the menu that appears, you will see an option to “Open With”. Hover on this option and you’ll see the PDF reader options on your computer.

It will include the browsers that are set up on your computer and any other software options. Try these additional options to see if the software will let you edit. If it’s free software, it’s likely just a reader and you will need to upgrade to edit.

Editing Software for PDFs

If you find that you do need to invest in some editing software to write on and manipulate PDFs, you’ll have thousands of options to choose from.

Let’s dive into our top recommendations.

Adobe

Adobe provides powerful software for editing, sending, and signing PDFs. If you’ve already been thinking about investing in any of the software available in the Creative Cloud package, this is the time to do so.

You’ll pay a monthly fee, but you’ll have access to all of the applications (from Premiere Pro and Photoshop to Acrobat) and updates. If you just want the reader, you can download that for free.

Iron PDF

If you’re only looking for a PDF software, look no further than Iron PDF. This is some of the most powerful software available and is perfect for developers because of the freedom it gives when turning coding languages set up in HTML into PDFs.

This c#PDF reader also offers over 50 features to use when reading and editing the files.

Microsoft Edge

If you’re a Windows user, you likely already have Microsoft Edge downloaded onto your computer. The browsing software actually gives you the ability to edit.

To try it out, right-click on your PDF and click on “Open With” and “Microsoft Edge”. A bar at the top should appear where you can click “Add Notes” and from there you can write, highlight, and erase.

It’s nothing fancy but it does the job. You’ll need to save a copy every time to keep your changes.

Note: If this doesn’t work, you may also need to install One Note to enable these capabilities.
