We’ll give you a little break from Windows 10 and it’s problems and bugs, because there’s still a lot of computers using previous versions of Windows operating system. This time, our problem is not attached to any special version of Windows, because it could appear on any. In this post, we’ll try to help you if you can’t print PDF files from your Adobe Reader.
The most common solutions
Before we proceed to complicated steps, let’s try a couple of simple solutions. First of all try to print another PDF file, in that way you’ll be able to see if your previous PDF file is maybe corrupted and unable to print because of that. Also, try to print some other type of file (.txt for example), if you’re able to print that file, the problem is in Adobe Reader, and updating it should fix the problem. Another thing you can do is to restart your computer and printer, as well. Because there’s a possibility that your printer‘s memory is full. If none of this helped you, try some of the following solutions.
Update printer’s driver
Maybe problem lays in your printer, so checking if your printer‘s driver is updated couldn’t do any harm. To update you printer‘s driver, do the following:
- Go to Device Manager
- Find your your printer under Devices and printers
- Right click on in and go to Update Driver Software…
If you still have a problem printing your PDF files after you applied the update, your printer is not the problem.
Use a another PDF reader software
In many cases, switching to another reader might be the easiest solution to solve this type of issues. The market is full of PDF viewers and editors which will help you. You can consult our article about the best PDF viewers and give them a try.
Try to print PDF as an image
Maybe some part of your PDF file is damaged, like some corrupted text, for example, and that prevents your printing. That could be solved with printing your PDF file as an image, so it won’t be dependent on a text. To print your PDF as an image in Adobe Reader, go to File>Print>Advanced, and choose Print as Image.
That’s essentially all, but if you still can’t print your PDF file from Adobe Reader, you might look for an answer on Adobe Reader Forum.
