    MS Edge does not print to Adobe PDF, following FCU


    Since installing FCU, MS Edge (my default browser) does not print to “Adobe PDF”. All other apps, including ie 11, have no problem printing to the “Adobe PDF” printer. There was no problem, with Edge before FCU.
    MS Edge does print with no problem to “Microsoft Print to PDF”, to my HP LaserJet and to "Microsoft XPS Document Writer".

    I already did both Repair and Reset of Edge (Settings > Apps > Microsoft Edge > Advanced Options), with no luck!

    Does anyone else experience the same problem? Is there a solution to that?

    And a little background:
    Windows 10 Pro x64, Version 1709 Build 16299.309
    Microsoft Edge Version 41.16299.248.0
    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, (Classic Track) Version 2015.006.30417

  2. Cannot print pdf in Windows 10 Edge or Reader

    I can print from MS Word and I can print a web-page from Edge but not a pdf that opened in Edge. I tried opening the pdf in Reader, but it still did not print.

    The pdf was e-mailed to me. It opened auto-magically in Edge (rather than reader or adobe acrobat).

    Thank you for your help,

    Leah

    Win10 PDF files not readable

    I can print using the Win10 Print to PDF. I have several such PDF files on my desktop but cannot open them with either Adobe Reader or Edge.

    I can print to PDF using PDF995 driver and open them with both Edge and Adobe Reader. I can also open older PDF files created on my old machine. Seems like a MS printer driver issue. Where do I get help, please?

    First of all, a big thanks *Thumbs to @Caledon Ken for taking the time to propose a solution.

    Following his recommendation, I tried both solutions offered in the adobe forum, but none of them worked:

    1. Cannot print to pdf from microsoft edge in wind... | Adobe Community (did not work at all)
    2. Cannot print to pdf from microsoft edge in wind... | Adobe Community (started printing but the small page I tried to print, got stuck in the print spooler, for ever!)

    So to I had to clear the print spooler and as always Shawn @Brink to the rescue, with his “Reset and Clear Print Spooler in Windows 10” tut.

    Print spooler, was cleared.

    Went back to my Adobe PDF printer and reset it, to what it was before trying the above recommendations:

    (a) Devices and printers > Adobe PDF printer > (right click) PRINTER PROPERTIES > Advanced tab - 'Spool print documents so program finishes printing faster' and 'Start printing immediately'.

    (b) Devices and printers > Adobe PDF printer > (right click) PRINTING PREFERENCES > Adobe PDF Settings > unchecked 'Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts'

    Case closed!
    Apparently, the print spooler was stuck from some previous unsuccessful printing attempt and clearing it, solved the problem and now Edge prints to Adobe PDF with no problem.

    I hope that helps somebody else, with the same problem.
