    Keep getting the 'Save output as' dialog when trying to print

    Can't seem to print a file from Windows 10. No matter which printer I set as the default, I only get the 'Save output as' dialog when trying to print. I already confirmed that the printer I want to use was set as the default, per the steps listed in this
    post: Redirecting.

    Other ideas on how to fix?

  3. Print to PDF missing in Printer List

    Hi William,

    We suggest that you disable and re-enable the Print to PDF feature. Here are the steps:

    • Click on the Start menu and type in Windows Features.
    • Choose Turn Windows features on or off.
    • On the next window, find Microsoft Print to PDF and disable it. Click
      OK to save changes.
    • Restart your PC.
    • Repeat the same steps to re-enable Microsoft Print to PDF.
    If the issue persists, we suggest that you perform the troubleshooting steps suggested on the link below under
