    Cannot save a PDF document to a specified folder.


    Hello everyone. New to the forum. I have recently downloaded Windows 10. My clients will send me a PDF document, and up until now I have been saving them to a specified folder. Now when I try to save it says something like "you do not have permission, contact administrator" I am signed on as administrator. Any thoughts?

    :)

    PDF Document Printing - Windows 10

    thanks for your suggestion, but sorry, does not work -

    I am in the MAIL or EDGE application in WIN10 - and hit Ctrl. P (or use PRINT) - for normal documents no problem to print in PDF. (with Microsoft Print to PDF as a printer)

    There is something happening, (the little activity circle turns) - but then I cannot find where the PDF was saved. I checked the download folder, but the file is not there.

    can the path where the PDF saved be specified?

    Destination Folder/File for MS Print to PDF

    Thank you for your response. No, I wasn't referring to save location of Windows+PrtScn. I was interested in specifying the location of the PDF file generated when we choose the printer 'Microsoft Print to PDF'. This now defaults to Document folder and
    there is no option to change that. I am not interested in changing the location from Document Properties nor I want to fiddle with reg keys by editing the registry. I want the freedom to specify the destination folder/file whenever I select to print to 'Microsoft
    Print to PDF'.

    Ok. can you be a little more specific. I assume that's a program.

    Oh I know what it is, its a PDF reader. I have Adobe but I have created a folder in documents. It's when I try to save the PDF to that folder, is when I get the warning.
