Powershell to Print PDFs

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

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.
