Print PDF scan in Landscape.

HP Deskjet 2630
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have scanned to PDF format an image in Portrait and want it rotated 90 deg and printed full page in Landscape mode. The image is saved to my Win 10 laptop as a Internet Explorer file.  I've changed the Print options in Control Panel as well as Printer options to Landscape.  It refuses to change from original scanned format.

If you have not done so, Download-Save-Install the printer software.

 

and / or

  • Download-and-Save the Full Feature Software or HP Easy Start Printer Setup for your Operating System version.
  • Navigate to the folder in which you saved the software installation package (likely Downloads)
  • Right-Click on the downloaded package and "Run as Administrator" to start the installation

NOTE

  1. If you use the EasyStart method, select the Full Feature Software (full driver) when the option is presented.
  • After the software is installed, Restart the computer and log in

 

If you have not done so,

Reinstall / Update your PDF Reader (Adobe Reader DC /Optional  Foxit Reader)

  • HINT: Watch out for and UNCHECK unwanted extra software
  • Adobe Reader DC software should be installed even if you do not open / view / print PDF files directly from the software.

 

Open the PDF file in Adobe Reader DC

Click the print icon

Set the options, including the orientation.

 

Example

Manage Print Output with Print Preview_PDF_1DManage Print Output with Print Preview_PDF_1D

 

PDF - Print as Image

 

If the file will not print due to unusual content (odd fonts, color schemes, tables, other oddities), print the file as an Image.  Image printing does not require the printer software to translate file content.

 

Open the offending PDF file in Adobe Reader DC > File > Print > Advanced >>

  1. Set the printer select the colors (Optional)
  2. Print the PDF file as an image

Thanks for the response. I had to Print the PDF then Save as Image and edit it with Snip & Clip. The edited file then Printed rotated and in Landscape mode as I wanted. Did go through the step as far as I could Dragon-Fur but ran into pricing issues with Adobe. I double checked and re loaded all the mentioned HP software. Your input got me thinking down different lines and I have resolved this Scan & Print.
