Printing to PDF on Windows with CutePDF

CutePDF is a PDF writer that is free to download and use and is also available on CAE windows computers. It allows you to create PDF files from any printable document, such as Word documents, excel spreadsheets and e-mails among other things.

CutePDF creates a PDF by printing to a file instead of a printer and can be found from the printing menu of any document that can be printed. To use it, follow a few simple steps:

  1. Chose the print option for the document, web page etc that you want to print (usually by going to file > print).
  2. From the drop down menu of printers, select "CutePDF Writer."

    3. A save-as screen will pop-up. Simply select the location you want the file to go and click save your file.

Note: You will not be able to edit PDF documents created with cutePDF, so remember to keep a copy of the original document so that you can easily edit it. You can edit PDF files with a program like Adobe Acrobat, which is installed on CAE Windows computers.
