Print File Large

Hi I'm new but have been using Go To My PC for remote work since 2013. This issue has been going on from the beginning so I suspect it's not a problem but maybe a setting issue or just the way it works. I just did a test. I have a 4 page PDF file on my host computer that is 1 MB in size. When I print to my remote printer, the print progress window shows that the file being printed is 151 MB. Indeed it takes the time to print of a 151 MB file. I also did a test on a Word Perfect file 156K in size and the print progress window shows it being printed as a 512K file - 3 times larger but not 150 times larger. I've spent a lot of time over the past 7 years waiting for print jobs to complete. Any suggestions on how to make things faster or reduce the size of the remote print file?

Hi @georgemeng

Have you considered creating a customized printer driver for GoToMyPC to communicate through, on the Host side?   Ref: https://support.logmeininc.com/gotomypc/help/how-do-i-manually-enable-a-printer-1095226051
