Install a PDF Printer Windows doesn’t include a built-in PDF printer, but it does include one that prints to Microsoft’s XPS file format. You can install a PDF printer to print to PDF from any application in Windows with a print dialog. The PDF printer will add a new virtual printer to your list of installed printers. When you print any document to the PDF printer, it will create a new PDF file on your computer instead of printing it to a physical document. You can choose from a variety of free PDF printers available online, but we’ve had good luck with the free CutePDF Writer.(http://www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp) Just download it, run the installer, and then you’re done. Just be sure to uncheck Ask Toolbar and other bloatware during installation. On Windows 8, PDF printers you install will appear both in the classic desktop Print dialog and the Modern printer list. From there you can select it and print to PDF.
