As Windows 10 becomes ever so more popular, more new apps get added to the Windows Store, be it by third party developers, or the folks at Microsoft. Thanks to a tip from our reader Christoper we have just discovered what appears to be a Microsoft designed Windows Store app which is used to configure ‘Print to PDF’ settings on PCs.


According to the store listing, the Microsoft Print to PDF Settings app is used for encrypting a document with a password, and requiring another a password for users to edit, print, or copy your document. At the moment of writing, we managed to install the app on two Windows 10 Machines, one which is running Windows 10 Pro version 1607 Build 14393.447,  and the other which is running the latest Fast Ring Build. In both instances, installing the app would bring up the screen seen above, but no more options for additional settings across the printing experience.  Judging from this, and the poor reviews on the Windows Store, we would assume that while the app is available in the store, and will eventually install additional Print to PDF Security features, it might not be quite ready as of yet.

Despite this latest Windows Store app, Microsoft has already included the “Print to PDF” format and option across Windows 10. Printing to PDF in Windows 10 is as simple as selecting Microsoft Print to PDF from the list of available printers.
