Any utilities that enable you to print from Kindle PC app?

I have the Kindle for PC app, I noticed there is no print function. Is there any way to print this? Convert it to pdf?

It's a reader, not a printer or a device you install apps on.

Yes, I own one.

Thanks for the reply. Just to clarify though I am not talking about the Kindle itself, I am talking about the Kindle software called Kindle for PC that you download and install on your computer.

I have the "Kindle for PC" from Amazon, and the answer is the same.

"Can I print or make annotations and highlights on Kindle for PC?

You can make and view highlights and notes in your books using the Kindle for PC application. The Kindle for PC application doesn't offer the ability to print content, clip text, shop from within the application or search within a book. Text-to-Speech and dictionary look-up are also not available with the Kindle for PC application".

Printing is not available.

I was looking for a solution for the same thing. I just wanted to print off the table of contents to keep my thoughts organized. You might want to try Gadwin PrintScreen. Its free, very good, and you can just set the output to the printer.Worked for me.

There might be a way

I was concerned about this printing issue myself, you can try this.
Highlight whatever you want to print on the Kindle itself. Then plug the Kindle into your computer, and there should be a file that contains all of your notes and highlights in word format. You can just print that and there you go.
I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but that's what I do when I want to print sections from books that I've read.

Thanks so much for this tip! I am absolutely delighted! The only thing clouding my, unexpected, new found delighted of electronic books, was not being able to photocopy portions to use away from the computer as a 'working copy' for non-fiction / working books (can't find a good translation for the German : Sachbuch), but thanks again.

Get the app lview and then do a screen print and paste it to lview. You can then print whatever you want.
