Do you want to convert Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, image, web page or any other document into a PDF file? Microsoft Print to PDF is a new feature comes pre-installed in Windows 10 as a virtual printer. Instead of printing on paper, it creates a PDF document from any document within any application, just as if it was printed.

Just open your document in any application that has printing capability, press Ctrl + P keyboard shortcut (or use the Print option from the menu). Now you should see Microsoft Print to PDF available in list of printers. Select it and click on Print. Choose where you want to save your PDF file and you’re done.
