Good Day!

So, you want to create a PDF document. You have any number of software options available to you. One of the more common ones is OpenOffice.org 3.0 with its ability to export to the PDF file format. This is good if you're working with documents (or spreadsheets or slideshows).

But what if you're on a web page - let's say you're doing some online shopping, and you make a purchase and you want to save your receipt, but you don't want to print it? If you could save the receipt as a PDF file you could save paper and still have the receipt.

What if... you're in an Instant Messenger window, and you want to make a PDF of a chat dialog so you can store it for posterity?

What if... well, you get the idea.

Step 1: What You Need

What you need:

A computer with Windows installed.

Please download PDF Creator from PDFForge.org

Suitable, document-generating applications such as office suites, web browsers, or ANYTHING which you can open a "Print..." function to get to a printer dialog prior to printing your documents.
