Basic PDF utility

Convert, edit, and merge PDFs with this basic tool.

PDF files are a part of just about everybody's life now, but many people don't have applications that are capable of doing much with these files besides viewing them. Quick PDF Tools is a small suite of utilities that lets users do more with their PDF files than just look at them. It's not the most feature-filled program we've ever seen, but it's not a bad choice if you're looking to perform a few basic tasks with your PDFs.

The program appears in the Windows context menu, so all you have to do is right-click on a PDF to access Quick PDF Tools. The capabilities that the program provides aren't terribly exciting, but they are potentially useful. Users can preview the file without opening a separate PDF viewer, edit the file's metadata, convert it to an image or text document, edit bookmarks, extract text and images, add passwords, and merge multiple PDFs into one file. The program can also be used to convert images into PDF files, but it doesn't seem to be able to convert text files into the PDF format, which is a significant drawback. The program's online Help file provides an adequate description of the program's capabilities. Overall, Quick PDF Tools didn't knock our socks off, but it's not bad as a basic set of tools for working with PDF files. Since the program lives so unobtrusively in the context menu, it's worth installing just to have it around in case you need it.

Quick PDF Tools installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
