  • Feature CreatePDF from contextual menu

    Hi there, I recently updated my laptop and had to reinstall Foxit Reader again. Everythings been great as usual but I just have a quick question.
    I'm sure I used to have a contextual menu option to create a PDF from an office file when I just right clicked on it. I seem to have lost that option. I already reinstalled and made sure the power shell extensions were installed.
    Is there anyway you can help me? Am I missing something? Thanks in advace.

      We highly apologize for any hassle and inconvenience this may cause for you. Foxit creator component has been removed in Foxit Reader 10 since our product marketing team redefined the purposes of Foxit Reader,it is mainly used to view PDF files,so the creating PDFs feature was deleted,the Foxit Reader 10 release no longer supports the create PDF feature, which includes Foxit Reader PDF Printer, Foxit Creator add-ins for Office, scan to PDF feature.
      If this capability is required for your workflows, may I advise you to try one of the below options?
      1. You can uninstall Foxit Reader V10 and install back Foxit Reader V9.7.2 which is the last version with Foxit
      creator feature contained. Following is link for downloading Foxit Reader V9.7.2:
      2. You can try out Foxit PhantomPDF which has Foxit PhantomPDF printer, it can be downloaded for a free 14 day trail from the Foxit Download Center -
      With PhantomPDF, you will get more features, like PDF editor, protection and so on, more details, you can refer to

      Sorry again, and thank you for choosing Foxit.
