Portable Document Format (PDF) files are used for ebooks, tutorials and other guides. These files can be read on computers and smartphones. PDF files can include an interactive table of contents, which will make them easy to navigate. You can create a PDF file with a table of contents by using Microsoft Word, or another document processing program, and Adobe Acrobat.
