Windows 7: Microsoft Word in Cute pdf default File name

Microsoft Word in Cute pdf default File name

If I 'print' a word doc as a pdf (File> Print) the Save As dialogue box always precedes the File name with 'Microsoft Word -'
I find this intensely annoying; I create a lot of pdfs and have to delete this every time. Is there a way to stop this appearing? Apart from anything else I seriously doubt that anyone on planet earth wants all their file names starting 'Microsoft Word'!

Have you tries File > Save As, instead of File > Print? You should then be able to specify the name of the .PDF without any other preceding words.

Thanks, this is a partial solution but it circumvents the 'printer' settings I would make to the pdf doc in advanced properties, and so results in a bigger file.

I am also interested in this solution!

We had this happen on some computers probably 3-5 years ago, probably when our company went to Vista, and we solved it, but no one can remember what we did. And now we've got the same problem with one new user and I can not figure out what we did way back when.

Okay, I think we solved it, at least for our instance. Try this, but you have to promise not to laugh at the suggestion or bitch if it doesn't work.

Go to Control Panel/Appearance/Folder Options/Show Hidden Files and UNCHECK the Hide File extension box and then try to print to PDF.
