Microsoft Print to PDF driver download Windows 10 64 bit. Question: “When I first upgraded to the Windows 10, I enjoyed the new “Print to PDF” option under the list of printer options. However, for some strange reason, it stopped working a couple of weeks ago. I tried going back to previous “Builds”, systems restore before updates, etc., but nothing fix the issue. I notice that “Print to PDF” was listed as a device under the Devices: Printers & Scanners within settings, similar to actually my Kodak Printer. So I thought I could just remove the “Print to PDF” device/printer/driver and reinstall it, similar to reinstalling my Kodak printer or a Kodak printer diver. However, I have been unsuccessful in locating a download or driver on Microsoft/Windows website for the “Print to PDF”. Where can I find the Microsoft/Window 10 “Print to PDF” DOWNLOAD or DRIVER to download/install to get back my “Print to PDF” as a printer function/printer option?”
