    Can't print .pdf from browser

    I can't print any .pdf file directly from browser (edge or chrome). When I choose print, the only option I have is to save as pdf and then I have to open the saved pdf file and print it. Saved files are printed OK.
    Can you help me?

    From the little information you've provided about the problem, I can't tell you what's causing it or how to fix it. But I can tell you this: the problem has nothing to do with "Print to PDF." Despite its name, printing to PDF doesn't really print anything
    on your printer. What it does is create a PDF *file.* with an image of what you apparently want to print on your printer.

    Is the bank statement you are trying to print on a web site? Are you trying to print it from there? If so, what browser are you using? Is it only bank statements you can't print? Or can you not print anything from that browser? Can you print from any other

  3. Windows 10 not finding remote printer when trying to print pdf files from a local pc.

    Update: Tried printing a PDF from my Maxthon browser and it too fails to print! Again, as in the two PDF printers mentioned in my previous post, Maxthon browser's print program seems to find the printer but won't print.

  4. Can't print .pdf from browser

    Hi are you going to the 3 dots up in top right hand corner to print from browser
    If not because your post is a bit vague
    Then go to the dots click on them
    Then scroll down to Print
    Click Prink
    Your Printer will appear
    Give it time to load
    Then click Print on your printer
    That should then do it
    If you have tried that way
    Then please explain more what you have tried besides the 2 above you mentioned
    Have you also installed Acrobat Reader DC as you may sometimes need this
