Creating PDF Files From Any Application

Published On: 2012-08-29By:

These days creating PDF files is getting easier and easier, especially when you are using a Microsoft Office application like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. to create the initial document.  However all too often you want to create a PDF file from another application like Firefox, Chrome, IE, Notepad, etc. This isn’t the easiest thing to do without paying for something expensive like Adobe Acrobat Writer.

There however is a much easier way, which is actually free to use, and this is called CutePDF Writer.  This isn’t some file converter that reads the input file and makes a PDF or anything complex like that.  It is simply a printer driver that takes the output which would be sent to a printer and instead creates a PDF file out of it then asking you where you want to save the file.

There is no configuration needed, just download and install the driver and application.  When you need to make a PDF there’s no application to run, simply print your file like normal and the PDF will be created.  That’s all there is to it.
