How to Save Almost Any File as a PDF File On Windows 10

How would you like to be able to convert many different types of files, like images, Word documents, text files, even Web pages, into PDF files without downloading and installing a program, or using a web service? If you’re using Windows 10 (any version), you have the power … right at your finger tips.

Pick an image, any image on your PC, open it with whatever program you like (or whatever your default is). Once it’s open, press CTRL+P and choose “Microsoft Print to PDF” as the selected printer and then click Print.
