Every time I print to PDF in Edge (Windows 10), it crashes Edge.  This started about 1 month ago it must have been a patch.  My windows 10 version - Version 20H2(OS Build 1904.1766).  So, now I am using Chrome as my default browser, till this gets fixed.

Hi @vmmorrison 

It looks like you're using an outdated version of Windows that's causing an error.

Windows 10, version 20H2 end of servicing - Microsoft Lifecycle | Microsoft Docs

 I suggest you download the Update Assistant from the Microsoft website.

Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

Ok I updated windows 10 to Version 21H2 (OS Build 19044,1766). rebooted twice just in case.   No, go edge the same thing print, printer Adobe PDF, press print, shows the folder to save and then EDGE crashes. Tried MS print to PDF, but that crashed sooner. Does not crash if you send it to the printer.
