Adobe Reader DC is a free PDF (Portable Document Format) reader. It doesn’t have a built-in feature to capture the document’s screenshot. So you have to use Windows’ “Print Screen” feature to take a screenshot of any PDF you are viewing. This feature allows you to save a portion of a PDF file and send it to anyone such as via email or chat app. To take a screenshot of a PDF file, it’s easy to go through the following steps.
