Hi all. I'm posting this in the hopes that it might help someone else out that may have the same symptom. Last week, my Adobe Reader stopped printing. Nothing I did produced any result. Not hitting the print icon. Not hitting CTRL+P. Not selecting "print" from the drop-down menu. There was no error message. No nothing. It was as if I hadn't clicked anything. I tried repairing the installation, no help. I've rebooted the computer many times over the last couple weeks. Here's what finally fixed it. On a whim, I went to Windows Explorer, right-clicked on the PDF file, and selected "print" from Explorers context menu. Adobe flashed open for a sec, and the document printed. Now, Adobe Reader prints as it always used to do. There must have been some little "glitch" or something going on.
Problem solved. Hope this helps someone else.
Thanks for sharing the troubleshooting, we appreciate your time and effort.
This would be a helpful information for someone who will experience the same.
Hi Artie and Ankanchha
I'm having the same issue....it's just stopped printing from the Adobe viewer.
If I save the PDF in another folder, if I right-click on the file name and select print....it will print...but gives me no options.Eg if I've got a 16 page PDF and I want to print pages 1-5, it wont let me...it just prints the whole thing.
It doesn't give me the printer menu.
This has just happened a few days ago.
I'm running Windows 10 !!!
Maybe not the same operating system as you.
Still cant get it to work
Akanchha.....is this a common problem?
good day Artied2. It seems i'm having the same issue but can you explain a little further. When you say you went to windows explorer, you mean windows file explorer? correct? This would surely insinuate you have the file saved on your pc. My issue is that when i use an online database and request a report, the preview opens Adobe, however when i click on the print icon it acts as if i never clicked. Maybe not the same issue here.
Please delete my comment if possible.
Realized there are other threads about this issue with replies from Adobe.
Hey Tony. Yes, it was within Windows file explorer. In other words, what you get when you hit the "Windows" key + "E". I can't explain much beyond that. It just started working after doing that.
I am also having the same problem on a mac. Any idea how to fix it.. Really annoying...
Sorry Marc. I really don't Macs.
