Windows – Print PDF from CMD with PDFtoPrinter

In this post I will show you how to print a PDF document from the Windows command line, terminal or CMD using the executable PDFtoPrinter.exe.

As you know, printing a PDF from the Windows terminal is not possible using the print command (since it only prints text files), since a translator is required to read the content of the PDF and send it to the printer.

It is precisely what this utility called PDFtoPrinter.exe does, and in this post I’ll show you how to use it.

Receipt printed in thermal printer using JavaScript only

Obviously you can change the font family, size, logo and so on. And remember: we will be using only pure CSS, HTML & JavaScript, no frameworks; though you can use any framework to render the content before printing.

You can see the demo here, and the full code on my GitHub.
