How to compress a PDF so that it weighs less without programs

The use of PDF files is something that we do almost daily thanks to the functions and characteristics of these files, among which we highlight that they are compatible with most operating systems, they are safe and at the same time light, allowing their management through email or other means such as SSH, but it is possible that some PDF files have a large size that prevents their management. Many times some file sharing systems do not allow the sending of large files or even for a web large sizes can be negative, hence compressing is a very interesting option..

 

Instead of using tools to split the PDF file, in case it has to be sent by mail, we can compress it so that its size is reduced considerably and the quality of the content is not affected, this is a simple process to perform and TechnoWikis will explain how to do it.
