Step 1: Open the PDF file you want to extract pages from with Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or any other software that supports opening PDF files.

Step 4: In the Pages drop-down box, select Page range, enter the page number that you want to extract and then click the Print button.
For instance, if you want to extract page 3 of a PDF file, enter 3 in the box. If you want to extract page 3 and 5, type 3, 5 in the box.
Step 5: Select a location to save the extracted PDF file, enter a name for the new extracted page of the PDF and then click the Save button. That’s it! Needless to say to that extracted page will be saved with PDF extension only.
