Powershell to Print PDFs

August 13, 2015

The below powershell script can be used to print out PDF files:


Start-Process -FilePath "I:\Litigation Support\Electronic Discovery\2d Circuit Decision re_ Electronic Reviews Following Seizure.pdf” –Verb Print -PassThru | %{sleep 10;$_} | kill
Start-Process -FilePath “I:\Litigation Support\Electronic Discovery\ACEDS 4 Corners of EDiscovery Pricing.pdf” –Verb Print -PassThru | %{sleep 10;$_} | kill
Start-Process -FilePath “I:\Litigation Support\Electronic Discovery\Alternate Forms of ESI.pdf” –Verb Print -PassThru | %{sleep 10;$_} | kill


The source of the script is this site:




It's necessary to  adjust the sleep seconds to a higher amount for long documents.


When making multiple copies set the printing prefences in Windows for x number of copies.  This will work faster than using multiple lines in powershell.
