  1. Microsoft Print To PDF Printer Doesn't Work Suddenly


    I'd been using "Microsoft Print To PDF" printer for a while until mid-April 2019 when it didn't work any more. It seems like some drivers have been deleted and it cannot be reinstalled. I used Windows 7 but it was automatically updated to Windows 10. I used it very often and it was really a great tool. What should be done?

    Thanks for your help. I was browsing the web the other day and I found a page called FINAL DRAFT. They had a set of instructions for reinstalling the Microsoft Print to PDF utility that worked great for me. Problem solved.

    Microsoft Print To PDF Printer Doesn't Work Suddenly

    Microsoft Print to pdf

    I use Sibelius Software and recently the Microsoft Print to pdf hasn't been working properly. In looking for a solution it was suggested that I remove it from the computer and reinstall the driver etc. It looked easy to do. I followed the steps as told (way

    [Solved] Microsoft Print to PDF Not Working on Windows 10 - Driver Easy

    But when I started the process of reinstalling it in 'add devices and printers' and came to the bit about chosing a device I wasn't offered 'The printer that I want isn't listed' option, but instead it said 'can't find what you're looking for' and when I
    pressed that link it took me to a Microsoft page about Bluetooth. I'm not sure how to get round this?

    How can I reinstall the pdf printer?

    Thanks!
