Question about Computers & Internet
This happens when you have selected a PDF printer instead of the real Physical Printer for printing
a PDF printer is a software which converts any thing sent out like a document or file for printing into a PDF file tis is useful for saving data from files or majorly from websites and emails as a softcopy on your system.
next time on, when printing check to see that the selected printer on default is a Physical Printer (like HP or Cannon etc.) connected to your computer and you'll have your hard copies
hope could be of help, cheers
