The Print to PDF feature in Windows 10 is very helpful to convert files to PDF. With the Print to PDF feature, you can convert documents to PDF and convert images to PDF with a few mouse clicks.

Excellent. I realised that my files had to be named to show a number … so filename1, filename2, and the software gets the files combined in the right order.

1st. You cannot select the order of the pages.
2nd. Quality is bad.
It is helpful article. Thanks
I named the files with 1,2,3, but it orders it randomly no matter how I select them. I spend an hour on this and cannot get it print in the right order, please help!

Regarding the control the order of pictures in the combined pdf, it seems that Microsoft Print to PDF orders the pictures based on the following:
1. the first picture is the one that your curser is over it when you right-click to prop up menu to print
2. rest of the pictures following descent naming order. Therefore, you need to name the pictures accordingly.
The rules were tested on a few picture combinations. Not sure they cover all cases.
Just want to share with those who have been frustrated with the order problem.
I want to combine the pics into a single image that’s either very wide or very high (or both).
Hi Fiona, thanks for the tips on how to make the right order!
omg. Thank you. That was super easy!
Thank you for sharing the easy and quick way combine files.
In answer to Abdus and Tatjana.. to get your jpegs etc. to print in the correct order, I have found (through trial and error) that when you right click to select ‘print’ you must right click with your cursor over the first jpeg of your selection and the rest will follow in order (hopefully!) I also numbered my jpegs in the order I wanted them to appear in the PDF, with the number placed at the beginning of the file name. Hope this helps..good luck.

thanku so much
thank you . it works
I have named the single pictures pic 2, pic 3………pic 11. The problem is that the pdf document starts with pic 5 and puts pic 2-4 at the end of the document. Any idea why and how I can make the pictures appear in the correct order?
