    windows limit of 15 print


    By default windows is configured for maximum 15 files selection for printing. There is registry tweek to increase it. I do not want to print hard copies. I want to use MS pdf printer or pdf creator. I need to select around 50000 one page files for print to pdf. Can I increase the windows limit of print to 50000.

    I do not know if this will work in W10 but it is worth a try. Note that you may need to create the DWORD entry yourself and set it to a value of 50000. (See the Note at the end of the article)

    Thanks. I set it to 1000 for test purpose around 15 minutes ago and it seems system is hanged or doing something in the background. Waiting for the outcome. Note: I am not printing physically but printing to pdf.

    It kept hanged for half an hour then I shut down the pc.
    Any solution that which free software can handle 50000 conversion to pdf very fast without changing layout and could keep files size very less.
