Hi All,

Can I print document without view the "Printing Options" window on Windows and Linux. What exactly I want is to print to virtual printer (to image instead of paper) without viewing that window, so that when I press "Print" the image is saved directly to a specified folder.

Can anybody give some hint?

Thank you.

Some apps support this already - the default Print button in the MS Word tool bar prints directly to the printer without popping up the print options dialog. I think this ability has to be coded into the app, I don't think that a global option can change this.
