    Microsoft Print to PDF changed?

    I used to select combine multiple JPEG files into single PDF file using Microsoft Print to PDF but it no longer seems to be working.
    What I normally did was selecting multiple files, then right-click > Microsoft Print to PDF. After doing that, a WIndow would open up with the all printing options, and then it would simply make all the selected files into a single PDF file in the order of selection.

    Now whenever I try to do that, it simply opens up a saving dialog window for each file and saves it to separate PDF files.
    Anyone knows if there's a solution, or Microsoft simply changed it for worse?

    I cannot help with the problem itself but I just did a comparison test and, on a fully-updated Ver 1709, MSPrintToPDF still prints the all the selected files into a single PDF.

    These links might prove useful and I think there are some threads in TenForums on the subject -
    Restore Microsoft Print to PDF
    [Fix] Microsoft Print to PDF Prints to .PRN file or Does Nothing

    Best of luck,

    How about Add or Remove Microsoft Print to PDF Printer ? You could try to 'reset' it by removing it then re-adding it.

    Or a TenForums search?

    Nope, that didn't help either, and I also searched here and online and someone else had that problem on the Microsoft Community answers site... But no one helped him either. I just hate those Windows bugs that have no solutions :'(! so annoying
