I have a PDF file. Its print option is disabled (locked). I cannot print it. I really need to print this file. Is there any way to print this file?

This is a security setting imposed by the author often to protect their work against unauthorised copying.  You should try to contact the author explaining why you need to have a printed copy & htey may be able to give you password access to the print option or send you a modified PDF that you can use.  Your only other option would be screenshots.

Check if you have a printer installed and functional. If not setup the printer first.

I believe one can import PDF files into Adobe Photoshop but each page opens as an individual file. Each of these files can then be printed separately Consider that option.

I found the answer myself. "Advanced PDF Password Recovery" software does that but unfortunately its demo version on http://www.crackpassword.com/download/apdfpr.zip lets you print the first 2 pages. I need to print all pages for free. Do you have any suggestions?
