CutePDF Writer is a virtual printer that creates PDF files. It installs in seconds and automatically configures itself as a virtual printer found in your 'Printers' folder under the name CutePDF Writer.

Creating a PDF document used to be exclusive to those owning expensive Adobe Acrobat packages, but the introduction of Ghostscript-based programs like CutePDF Writer make it much easier for anyone to create PDF files. Unlike the Professional version, the free version of CutePDF Writer has been simplified with no options or control panel, just a simple 'save' dialog box.

CutePDF writer may be just what you need: a hassle-free and simple virtual printer!
