Windows 7 Problem Saving to PDF

    Question

  • I was able to save my Word Docs to PDF in Vista, but the option simply is not listed in 7.  I thought everything would be the same, just better??  Anyone have a fix for this?  I've checked many forums but haven't found the answer.  I'm seeing info on Windows 2007, but not windows 7.  Thank you!

    how did you save them?  I have office 2007 and it saves a word doc to pdf fine
    i had vista and there was no program installed in vista that had this at least not in home premium
    but if you do not have office 2007 you can install Primo pdf which is a free program (i have it and it works great) at

    it will covert a doc file or any file into a pdf file

  • If you are using Office 2007, you can download this update which provides PDF and XPS saving in Office: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=4D951911-3E7E-4AE6-B059-A2E79ED87041&displaylang=en

  • As stated above, saving as pdf has nothing to do with Windows, but with the application you are using.
    You can use any of the above solutions for your issue.

    Hope this helps solving your issue.
