Fix Print to PDF missing option in Windows 10

Did you know PDF is one of the most widely used formats for storing documents, images, etc? Even before Windows 10, we used to install 3rd party software like Adobe Acrobat or Nitro PDF to be able to save the document or rather export them in PDF format. However, with the advent of Windows 10, Microsoft added the option of converting files to PDF using a Print to PDF printer. A very simple and elegant process of directly printing anything to PDF.

Thus allowing everyone to print a document/images etc. directly in PDF format. However, there have been times that due to come or the other weird circumstances, we do not see the Print to PDF printer option.
