    I have used my Lexmark Software to scan a resume and make it a pdf file. It is not in microsoft word. I need to know how to find the pdf file and how to convert it to my microsoft word so that I can edit it. Please help. Thanks

    P. S. The pdf file is located in my Lexmark info but I don't know how to get it to microsoft word in order to edit it.

    If you remember the name of it, simply search for the name in start > search. Regardless, the lexmark scanner will have a default area that it scans to; you can also check the scanner settings for that area.

    As for converting it to a .doc format, there may be some apps out there that will do it for you, but generally you will lose some formatting as .pdf is not designed to be converted to anything else. If this is your resume, I'd assume you already have a .doc format on your pc somewhere?

    If you have M$ Office ... see Office Tools >> Document Scanning ..
    This will Read (OCR) a scan to Word
