    I wonder what else they snuck in, trying to find new things out of boredom
    They snuck in disk compression which annoyed the developer of Zipmagic which does the same thing (except you have to pay 34.88 for it) ... zdnet

    @ZIPmagic This is not the first time that a third-party solution has been hurt when Microsoft addresses the underlying issue as part of the base OS. Sorry, Simon. I'm sure you'll find ways to build on this.
    I guess all no-one will have to download Nitro PDF or Bulldog or whatever any more for PDF printing which is a good thing - it should have been in the OS years ago. Good find anyway, thanks.

    That disk compression is a good one. I tested is and saved 7.5GB of space.

    I just went through System 32 and figured it out, not sure why I didn't think of that before. Looking too hard for things that aren't there.

    Reps to you.

    Yes, that does appear to be new. One of the many tiny new features that they haven't publicized.
    Tiny to you... Much bigger deal in the effort to reduce the number of documents printed on paper unnecessarily. So much paper and ink is wasted it's unreal.

    I kid you not when I say I know people who would regularly print things on paper, then use the photocopier to scan them to network drives as PDF's. Afterwards they would just put the paper through the shredder. In all fairness to them though, it was the quickest way to do it as a photocopier with a document feeder is incredibly quick at scanning and it wasn't exactly their fault that their computers didn't have the ability to print directly to PDF or TIFF from the software they were using. Also getting an IT department to install any third-party software on company machines is a nightmare, if not pretty much impossible.

    Microsoft's XPS solution wasn't really feasible due to having low adoption, little recognition and uncertain future compatibility, which isn't such a problem with PDF, TIFF and JPEG, and they're widely accepted long term archival formats.
