Useful Tip for Everyone: A Simple Solution for File Conversion

Online file converters are popular because of their convenience. The need to convert one type of document into another file format is one that many people experience on a regular basis whether at work or at home.

When it comes to online document conversion, Cometdocs is a name that has been synonymous with the field over the last five years. The service offers a vast variety of conversion options, giving users the ability to convert PDFs into a huge number of formats, such as Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint, HTML, image files and much more. It even supports the conversion of XPS files, which not many other online file conversion services offer.

Cometdocs is highly regarded because it is one of the very few free online conversion services that offers conversion of a very high quality. When converting a PDF or XPS file into a more editable document format, the Cometdocs conversion engine preserves the formatting of the original file perfectly, so that you don’t have to edit your output file further once receiving it.

And when it comes to pure convenience, Cometdocs is one of the best in the game, thanks in great part to its Desktop App.

While most online converters require you to visit their site, enter your email address and then wait for a download link to be sent to you, the Cometdocs Desktop App allows users to convert their files without even having to open up a web browser.

Here’s how it works:

If you haven’t signed up for a free Cometdocs user account, do so first, and then download and install the free and incredibly lightweight Desktop App:

Once you have installed the application, you are ready to convert files with literally just one click of the mouse.

Find the file that you want to convert and right-click on it. Now look for the orange Cometdocs logo in the menu that appears.

If you are converting a PDF or XPS file, it will say “Convert To” next to the Cometdocs logo. Simply pick the document type that you want your PDF or XPS file converted into.

If you are creating a PDF from another file format, it will say “Create PDF” next to the orange icon. Simply select the option.

And that’s all you have to do!

Once you have selected your conversion option, the file is immediately sent to the Cometdocs server, directly from your desktop. As soon as the conversion is completely, the newly converted file is immediately downloaded back to your computer – into the same folder in which your original file is located.
