Windows 7: PDFs will only print to File

PDFs will only print to File

When I try to print a PDF it only will let me print to file. I have Windows 7 Home Premium and Office 2010 Beta. This is a new problem. I cannot locate a Print to File box to uncheck anywhere. I did a repair on Office 2010. Thanks

If you want to make a pdf, you use a pdf printer to make it. The Word pdf printer is for that purpose. If you need to print the resulting .pdf file, you would use a real printer.
