One can easily convert a screenshot into a PDF via Windows 11/10 Photos app. But not many are aware of the process. This short guide without any elaborate instructions will help you convert a screenshot of any format (JPEG, PNG, BMP, etc.) into a PDF. Moreover, a good part of it is that it does not require you to download and any additional software.
Save screenshot as PDF using Windows Photos App
As mentioned, we would be using the native Windows 11/10 Photos app to carry out the following steps:
- Open the screenshot with Photos App
- Use Microsoft Print to PDF option
Let’s cover the steps in detail now.
1] Open the screenshot with Photos App
Go to the location where the screenshot or the image you would like to convert into a PDF is saved.
Once there, right-click the image and choose ‘Open with > Photos’ option.
2] Use Microsoft Print to PDF option
When the app opens, choose ‘Print’ icon, just adjacent to the ‘See More’ options.
Next, when the ‘Print’ dialog appears, hit the ‘Printer’ drop-down arrow and select ‘Microsoft Print to PDF’ (Microsoft Print to PDF is the virtual built-in default PDF printer by Microsoft. It readily converts any standard document into PDF Format for Free).
Choose either Landscape or Portrait mode and hit the ‘Print’ button.
The action, when confirmed, will save the screenshot as a new PDF file in your default folder.
A pop-up notification will instantly appear in the bottom right corner of your screen, confirming the screenshot is saved as PDF.
Thus, using these simple steps, you can change the format of a screenshot into PDF.
Similar to this, you can use another Windows 11/10 native app – Microsoft Paint to save or convert a screenshot into PDF.
