If you can't see the Print and Cancel buttons, your monitor is set to a low screen resolution. Reader wasn't designed for low-resolution displays (the minimum recommended is 1024 x 768). However, you can work around this limitation. Do either of the following to print your document:
(Windows) On some monitors, the Windows taskbar covers the Print button. You can hide the taskbar so it appears only when you mouse to the bottom of the screen. Right-click the taskbar and choose Properties. In the Properties dialog box, select Auto-hide the Taskbar, then click OK.

You can print double-sided if your printer supports double-sided (duplex printing) feature.
Note: Double-sided printing is also called duplex, back to back, front and back, or two-sided printing.
The printer driver controls the options, not Adobe Acrobat DC or Adobe Reader DC. Check your printer documentation to see what features your printer supports.
There could be a scenario when a printer actually supports duplex printing and this option does not appear in the Print dialog box. In such cases, open the printer properties to directly access this option from printer preferences.
For more information, refer to the article Print double-sided.
You can print a color PDF in shades of gray (also known as grayscale or composite gray).
You can scale the page to shrink or enlarge pages when you print. You can automatically scale to fit the paper or manually scale by percentages.
You can print a large format document, such as a poster or banner, by splitting the page across multiple sheets of paper (called "tiling"). The Poster option calculates how many sheets of paper are needed. You can adjust the size of the original to best fit the paper and specify how much each "tile" overlaps. You can then piece together the tiles.
You can print more than one page of a PDF on a single sheet of paper. Printing multiple pages per sheet is also called n-up printing (such as 2-up or 6-up). You can specify how the pages are ordered, either horizontally across the page or in vertical columns.
You can print a multipage document as a booklet. The pages are laid out two per sheet. When you collate, fold, and staple the double-sided sheets, the result is a single book with the correct page order.
You can print comments in place (like sticky notes on a page), in a list, or as a summary.
In the Comments and Forms area, do one of the following:
You can print a portion of a page in a PDF. Use the Snapshot Tool to select just the area you want to print. The area can be text, graphics, or both. You can print the selected area full size or resize it to fit the paper.
Start with these troubleshooting tips
Printing problems can have various causes. To identify the issue, start with this helpful tech note: Troubleshoot PDF printing | Acrobat, Reader
If the PDF is password protected, and printing is not allowed
If you receive a password-protected PDF, enter the designated password to print the document. Some protected documents have restrictions that prevent you from printing, editing, or copying content in the document. If a document has restrictions on printing, contact the PDF author.
(Windows only) Protected Mode is interfering
The default Protected Mode greatly enhances the security of Acrobat Reader DC. To determine if Protected Mode is interfering with printing, temporarily disable it. Right-click the document, and choose Document Properties. Click Advanced to view if protected mode is enabled.
To disable protected mode, choose Edit > Preferences and click Security (Enhanced) on the left. Deselect Enable Protected Mode At Startup. Close Reader, restart it, and try to print the document again.
To ensure maximum security, when you finish printing, reselect Enable Protected Mode At Startup.
Overprint simulation approximates how blending and overprinting of colored artwork looks when printed on an offset press. You can simulate the effects of overprinting on a color desktop printer by selecting Simulate Overprinting in the Advanced Print Setup dialog box. Overprint simulation converts spot colors to process colors for printing. If you intend to use a file for final output, do not select Simulate Overprinting.
Color printers vary greatly in color reproduction quality. For that reason, proofs from a service provider are the best way to verify the final output.
In case Acrobat Reader DC is prompting to save a file when you click Print, then click Advanced print dialog and deselect the Print to File option.
There are certain annotations (example: pop-up notes) which are available on the PDF document and the annotations do not print by default unless you want them to be printed.
This has been intentionally designed so that such annotations do not hinder the view of the content available behind them.
However, there may be cases when you do want them to be printed. To print the pop-up notes and other annotations:
This could happen due to an Adobe Acrobat DC installation file corruption. To resolve this issue, ensure that you are using the latest version of Adobe Reader DC/ Acrobat DC application.
If you are seeing this issue with the latest version:
