Microsoft Print to PDF Is a New Feature in Windows 10

One of the cute little additions in Windows 10 is the Microsoft Print to PDF option. To convert documents or web pages to PDF, one needed to use third-party tools or virtual printer drivers all these days. Most people, including me use Cute PDF Writer driver or similar drivers supplied with PDF reader applications like Adobe Acrobat or Fox It Reader. And, don’t forget Microsoft’s own Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS.

Now that Windows 10 includes the built-in Microsoft Print to PDF option which functions very well, it’s time for me to uninstall the 3rd party ones.

While you’re on a document or web page, choose the Print option and select Microsoft Print to PDF from the Printers drop down box. Here is a snapshot from Microsoft Edge print dialog:



Type a file name in the Common File dialog that appears, and save the file. By default, it’s saved in Documents.
