In this article, we'll go over five very easy ways to convert a screenshot into a Word document, with step-by-step instructions so you can follow along.

There are several ways that you can do this: you can convert one screenshot to a noneditable Word document, convert a screenshot to an editable Word document, convert multiple screenshots into a Word document in a batch process, convert all screenshots into one Word document, and more!

In the next section, we'll show you all the different methods that you can use UPDF to convert screenshots into Word documents.

Way 1. Convert One Screenshot to One Noneditable Word

In this case, you probably won't need to edit the screenshot, so you will only need to convert it to Word.

You can follow the steps below to convert a single screenshot into a noneditable Word document.

On Windows:

On Mac:

If you have a Mac, there are two ways to convert a screenshot to a Word document. The first method is the same as the directions above for Windows. You open the screenshot in UPDF, and then export it into a Word document.

The second way is to use UPDF to directly take a screenshot. Follow these steps:

Step 1 - Open UPDF

Make sure the file or image that you want to screenshot is already open, and then open UPDF. Then, click the minimize icon to close the UPDF window.

Step 2 - Take a Screenshot

At the top of your screen, select "File" > "Create". You have three different options that you can select:

PDF from Selection Capture: This allows you to take a screenshot of just part of your screen by clicking your mouse and then dragging it across the area that you want to screenshot.

PDF from Window Capture: This allows you to take a screenshot of a specific window. You just need to select the window that you want, and UPDF will take a screenshot.

PDF from Screen Capture: This allows you to take a screenshot of your entire screen. If you click this option, UPDF will automatically take a picture of your entire screen and convert it to a PDF.

You can choose the screenshot option and screenshot the content in the PDF. When you finish screenshotting, it will open automatically in the UPDF.

Step 3 - Export PDF

You can now export the screenshot PDF to a Word document by clicking "Export PDF"> "Word (.docx)". Choose a location to save your file, and click "Save".
