Some PDF files may not be printed in Adobe Reader. A work-around, however, will enable you to print these files. The process will be slightly tedious, since you will have to perform the procedure for printing one page over and over until you print the entire file. Nonetheless, you must perform the task in this manner if you wish to print the file at all. Otherwise, you will not be able to print the file.


Step 1

Open the PDF file. Start with the first page. Hold "Alt" and press your "PrntScr" key.
