If you’ve ever had to print out a document and turn it into a PDF, you know how much of a pain that can be. But if you’ve never tried to delete pages from PDF, then here’s what you should hear: it’s harder than deleting the pages from a regular text file! But don’t worry; there are ways around this problem. This article will show you some of the easiest ways to delete those pesky extra pages in your PDFs so that they look like the perfectly organized document they once were on paper.
Install a PDF Tool.
You’ll need to install a PDF tool on your computer to remove pages from a PDF. The latest version of leading tools like Adobe Acrobat is available for free on the Adobe website, and it’s easy to install: just run through the wizard that pops up after clicking the download button.
Once installed, you can open Adobe Acrobat by double-clicking its desktop shortcut or searching for “Acrobat” in your start menu. This will bring up a window where you can enter text or click buttons to generate results; select “Open” at the top of this window and navigate to where your document is stored on disk (it may be in your Downloads folder).
Open the PDF file you want to change.
Open the PDF file you want to change. If you don’t have Adobe Acrobat, you can download it from their website (you may need to sign up for a free account) and then use that software to open your document.
Click on the file once it is open, and then select Add Page (or press Ctrl+P). This will add a new page at the end of your document, allowing you to delete pages from anywhere between pages 6 and 7 (or whatever numbers are next).
To delete a page, go to the Tools pane and select the Pages panel. Then click on the Delete button in that pane. You can also access this option by right-clicking on any page and choosing “Delete Page.” This will open a dialog box where you have the option to confirm or cancel deleting a page from your PDF file.
Select and delete pages if needed.
To select the pages, you want to delete, click on the page numbers in the Pages panel. To select more than one page at a time, hold down Ctrl and click on each page number you want to include in your selection. When you have selected all the pages needing deleting, click on the Delete Pages button (shown below). The selected pages will be deleted from your document.
When you delete a page from a PDF, it’s gone. It’s not recoverable and can’t be restored. However, if you want to remove pages without permanently deleting them, consider printing them out or exporting the pages as image files instead. This way, they’ll still be available on your hard drive or disk space but won’t take up any space in your PDF document.
