PDF is the most reliable document format in current use. A PDF file can be opened on any computer irrespective of their hardware specification. That’s what made Portable Document Format (PDF) very famous. There are many people who like to read a PDF ebook rather than a paper book.

What if you’ve got a single PDF file in many parts? People usually split high- sized files for the convenience to transfer them.

It will be an annoying task to read the same document from different files. So, we need to merge those files to make it a complete one.

Here in this post, I will be showing how to merge PDF files quickly. It’s not at all a tough row to hoe. There are many methods to merge PDF files. But this post includes two of the easy ways.

Let’s get started.

How to Merge PDF File

Here, I am showing two easy methods with which you can merge your short PDF files to have a complete one. If you want to get your files combined within a matter of seconds, go with the first method. For that, you should have an internet connection.

But, the second method requires software. After installing that, merging PDFs can be done right away.

Choose the one that fits you the best.

#1. How to Merge PDF Files Online

This is the easiest method to combine multiple PDFs if you have a stable internet connection. That is the only requirement you should have.

Get the short PDF files ready in your PC. Then proceed to the following steps for combining them.

  1. Visit pdfmerge.com. It is a complete tool for merging PDFs. As you can see in the image, there is a link to htmlpdf.com, which helps you to convert any web page to Portable Document Format.
  2. You will see a button says ‘Choose File.’ By default, there are four buttons to browse for files. If you have more than four files to merge, just click on ‘More Files’. By this way, you can add as many files as you want.
  3. After choosing files, click on ‘Merge!’. That’s all. You will get a final file containing all the details of the short files you have inserted. Download it and you are done.

Now you can answer anyone who asks you how to merge PDF files.

N.B: pdfmerge is not the only tool to merge PDF files. Many tools are out there like pdfjoiner, online2pdf, pdfjoin etc. But still, the first one is the best.

#2. How to Merge PDF Files Offline

What if you don’t have an internet connection? You need a third- party software to serve this purpose. Download the software using the internet connection of your friend or neighbour.

Here, I am explaining the method of combining multiple PDFs with PDFsam software.

  1. Click on this link to download the software. As you lack an internet connection, bookmark the link and use it when you get access to the internet.
  2. Run the installer file and open the UI after the installation process is completed. Choose Merge/ Extract option from the left tab.
  3. You have to select the destination folder and some additional settings (not at all hard).
  4. Then click on the “run” button. That’s all. The output file will be saved in the directory you have chosen earlier.

PDFsam is one of the many tools to help you combine your short PDF files to make a complete one. Use which suits you the best. Every tool has a similar tool, and you have to do the same steps like browse files, choose the output folder, click Run or Merge or Combine. That’s all.

P.S.: Foxit and Adobe have dedicated PDF tools. Adobe has the well- known Acrobat kit that is a complete collection PDF utilities. Foxit too has utilities that serve the purpose of editing, creating, merging and splitting of PDF files.

But the fact is that you can’t get all the features with a free version. If you want a professional toolset for Portable Document Format, don’t hesitate to purchase them. You will not regret the moment you did it, I swear.

Final Thoughts
