Batch-convert Word-documents to PDF’s (free)

I'm using word 2010, where I can save a word document into PDF. But I'll have to open it, save as etc. Is it a tool or script or something that I can do this automatically without launching word, even if it means I have to use the cmd shell?

If you wish to do it from outside Word, you need a doc to pdf converter tool. Many open source tools are available that can do this. You can check this among one of the many sites available: http://www.doc2pdf.net/

Use the save as short cut F12 to save docs as pdf.
Or if you want to set pdf as default file type follow this.
