Create pdf documents for free

Here is an open source printer driver. Once you install it on your machine it will create a fake printer on your computer. Printing any document to this printer, will cause your document to be converted into a .PDF file. Pretty neat!

  • Close programs like Outlook, Word, SQLEdit, Visual Studio etc. (otherwise the setup may fail)
  • Install the software (accept all defaults), it will create a new printer on your machine called “PDFCreator”.
  • To create pdf documents all you need to do is to print to this printer. It will prompt you for the PDF location and will automatically open the PDF after it is created.
