Print to PDF option missing from printer list

Apr 19, 2011 8:01 AM

I recently got a new computer with Windows 7 64-bit Home Professional, and downloaded Adobe Reader X.

I didn't customise the installation or touch anything, I just let it download and install itself as it saw best.

However, it must be missing a print driver or something? Because the 'Print to PDF' option doesn't appear in the list of printers when I try to print a document from a variety of programs. I have tried in several Office 2007 programs and Office 2010, as well as from Google Chrome.


Someone please help me get the 'Print to PDF' option back, or explain why it is missing?


Thanks in advance.

    Reader doesn't install a PDF printer. Adobe Acrobat does. So you probably had Acrobat on your old machine.


    Reader is made for a free way to view/print PDF's. Acrobat is the paid for version.
