.pdf graphic file to something in MS Paint?

I'm trying to do something at work. I have a .pdf floor plan layout that I want to open up and work with in MS paint or something generic. I want to draw fire escape routes and things like that. Anyone know how to convert it to work with in MS Paint? I have the .pdf saved on my desktop but I can't seem to open it to work with it. Hope you guys can help. Thanks.

Open the file w/ Adobe Acrobat, go to

File>Save As

And then a box will open called "Save As"
At the bottom, under Save As Type, click on the arrow next to it and drop down menu will open, click on "JPEG" and make sure it stays there, then click on "Save" and Acrobat will convert the file into a .jpeg file, then you can open it w/ MS Paint and make changes to it.

I opened it up and clicked on file but it will only let me save it as an Adobe file. it doesn't show the "Save As" it only allows "Save a Copy" and "Save as Text". I then save it to the desktop, right click on it , "Open With" and I can't find anything in the options available other than Adobe to open it. Can you play around with it as is?

If you can see the whole thing on your screen, you could do a print screen then paste that into paint/photo editor.

I think Acrobat only allows you to save to jpg, not Acrobat Reader.
