How to Remove or Extract Individual Pages from a PDF File on Windows 10
How many times have you downloaded a chunky PDF file and wish you could extract only few pages out of it? Well, we don’t know about you guys, but we have for sure. If you want to extract a specific page or content from a hefty PDF file, then you’re at the right place.
PDF files are extremely convenient in terms of transfer, ease, and security. PDF is able to compress large, chunky files in mere KBs and MBs. The readability on PDF files is also great.
However, sometimes like in the cases of E-books or your Course books where for instance you want to extract a single chapter or a fragment of the chapter or vice versa, then scrolling through those unnecessary pages is simply inconvenient especially when we we’re here to tell you on how you could extract your desired content from a PDF file.
EXTRACT YOUR DESIRED CONTENT (PAGE) ON PDF
Before starting off, we would like to point out that extracting a single page(s) from PDF does not require any sort of special tool or software, but rather it’s a trick that we’ll walk you through. So, don’t get bored thinking that a tedious process lie ahead.
Now, let’s begin!
This process only requires a web browser, with internet access of course, and the PDF file you desire to extract. The idea here is similar to using the print to PDF option.
I’ll be taking a sample PDF file just to show you how the process works. First, open the PDF you need the page or pages from in your Web browser. I’m using Microsoft Edge, you may be able to use Chrome and Firefox too. The concept is same, only the option layout will vary.

Now, after hitting the print option, a window will appear where you need to select the page or pages you want to print. For Microsoft Edge, the following window appears:
Now, you have to change your Printer to ‘Microsoft Print to PDF’ and select the desired page or pages you want to be saved. As an example, I’ve typed in page number 2:
After hitting the print button, your system will automatically direct you to save the file in your desired location. Like this:
I chose to save it to my documents, you can change as per your preference. Now, your desired page from the PDF file will be saved to your system and you won’t need to go through the hectic procedure of scrolling through piles of pages each time.
And that’s it!
