Windows 7: Print Add/Remove?

Print Add/Remove?

I'd like to periodically print to pdf the contents of Add/Remove so I have a backup record of the applications installed. There is no Print under File or otherwise. A printscreen copy/paste to Paint is an unwelcome kludge. Is there a way to print the contents at one shot to pdf?

I use foxit reader(free) for that very purpose...Plus there is less bloatage in foxit reader. IMHO

Most of third party screen capture apps are able to capture a scrolling window, which is then possible to save as an image. Snip below for instance is made with FastStone Screen Capture, showing installed applications on this laptop:

FastStone can save as an image or PDF.

I don't get it. The problem is not the viewer (which I have too) but the ability to execute a print job?

Sorry to say but my solution as told above works perfectly.

So does foxit reader if you save doc as pdf!
Best thing to do is try them both and see which one you like the best....

I'm sure it did for you but what you did not explain (and what I'm interested in) was how you created (instigated) the print job from the Add/Remove screen?

In FastStone, right click FastStone icon in notification area and select Capture Scrolling Window (or press CTRL+ALT+PrtSc), then simply click inside the scrolling list / window you need to capture, for instance inside programs list in Control Panel > Programs and Features.

Okay, now I see how your're capturing the entire image. Is that scroll_capture feature only found in the shareware version--FastStone Capture?

I need this ability so infrequently I'm not wild about purchasing it.

Check here free older versions, I'm not sure if Capture Scrolling window feature is included in those.
