By January 15, 2013

Follow me on:


Do you have a file that needs to be converted to another format, say, a Word document to a PDF file? You can do that for free with Zamzar, a free online conversion utility.

First, browse to the file on your computer that you'd like to convert. Next, choose the format you'd like the file converted to; you have a long list from which to choose from: image formats, document formats, video and audio formats, etc. Your email address is next, since Zamzar needs to send the file somewhere, click "Convert", and within about five minutes or less, you'll get the newly converted file in your inbox. No download required, no silly sign-ups or annoying junk mail. Zamzar does what it tells you it's going to do, and that's it - a refreshingly useful tool that you definitely need in your Web toolbox.
