That's the one I use sometimes :)

I don't know what I installed but I get the option "print to PDF" direct in the drop box menu to select printers now it appeared one day and changed my life :lol:

Are you trying to print to PDF, print to an actual image? Windows 7 should have a print to XPS option which is a bit like print to PDF.

If you want to print your screen, alt+printscrn should still work, then just paste the image into Windows Paint.

Pretty sure Windows 7 also has a Snipping Tool, just type snip into the search box, you can snag whatever bit of screen you like then and paste into Windows Paint too.

Atari 520ST (1Meg) + Gotek, 1040STFM + Vortex ATOnce + Gotek, 1040STF long button floppy, 4160 STE with Gotek and ROM switcher, 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher and CosmosEx, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..

As an alternative: FreePDF

Crapware free, is based on Ghostscript and you can define your own profiles, including profiles to generate images instead of PDF files. Not the most beautiful thing on the planet, but it works.

Note: Development has stopped, but the current version runs fine with Windows 7. Since I am most likely stuck with that version forever, I cannot say anything about Windows 10 compatibility :)

Regarding screenshots:

I like Greenshot:

In addition to taking screenshots it has a simple editor for annotations, can snap part of a screen and supports series of screenshots.
