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.


Start program at Windows Startup

In this post I will show you how to make an executable open when Windows starts, adding its shortcut to a special directory called Startup folder.

Thanks to this, as soon as the computer starts, the executable will be opened, regardless of its origin.
