If you ever find yourself needing to merge PDF documents into a single file, you may become dissatisfied right away because the solution isn’t immediately evident.
Fortunately, Adobe, the PDF’s inventor, has a super-easy and free online application that will let you combine your files in minutes. Continue reading for a step-by-step walkthrough that will teach you how to effectively combine two or more PDFs.
Combining PDFs using Adobe Acrobat’s online tool
Adobe’s free online tool to combine PDFs offers a clean and simple interface that’s easy to understand.
The first time you use the tool, you don’t need to sign in, and you can just select to download your merged file when you’ve completed the process.
If you want to use the tool again, you will need to sign in with your Google, Facebook, or Apple account, or by creating an account with your email address and a password.
When you do sign in, you get the additional option to share your file by either generating a link or emailing it to others.
Combining PDFs files online
To get started, you need to get your PDF files into the main “Combine Files/Merge PDFs” box you will see at the top of the page.
You can do this by dragging and dropping your PDF files into the box, or you can click the “Select Files” button to choose files you have saved on your computer.
Once you’ve uploaded your PDF files, it’s just a matter of clicking the “Merge/Combine” option toward the top right of your screen.
If you’re signed in, you’ll need to give the new file a name before the “Combine” button is clickable.
What you can do with your combined PDF file
After you’ve completed the combine process, you can download or share your new file.
From the completed merge screen, you’ll also see a menu on the right-hand side of the page.
