How to Compress a PDF File on PC and Android

You can reduce the size of a PDF file by compressing it and here's how you can do it on PC and Android:

PC

Install and open "Computech PDF Compress" software.

Click on "Add Files" or "Add Directory" button and then add the PDF file(s) you want to compress. Click "Start" button.

Start button

That's all. The software will begin the compression process, and once it is done, you'll see a popup stating "Operation Finished."
