One way some people like to publicly show documents is to embed a PDF directly into their website when they create one, or they may embed a PDF directly into anything others can view. If you need or want a copy of this PDF, you can extract it in a few short clicks, made possible by the "Save" button that displays when viewing the PDF.

Step 1

Open the website or document containing the embedded PDF file.

Step 2

Locate the button resembling a floppy disk. This is on the upper menu bar, and this is the "Save" button. Click it to extract your file.

Type in a name for the PDF. Press the "Enter" or "Return" key on your keyboard to complete extraction.
