Error code8004808a

So starting from last night I started getting this every single time I tried to save a pdf file regardless if I was editing it in Edge or Reader and this hasn't been a problem before and was wondering just whats going on as it's annoying being I use these pdf's as digital backup copies of character sheets in D&D for my group. (In case of loss, damage forgetting it etc.)

Moved from: Microsoft Edge / PDF, EPUB, and reading / Windows 10

Hi Jonka,

For me to properly assist you with this error that you received when saving a pdf file, I would like to ask the following information to help sort out the problem:

  • Before this error appeared, were there any changes or updates performed on your PC?
  • Aside from Edge and Reader, have you tried editing a pdf file using a different browser? Did you get the same error message?
  • What PDF reader are you using.

By the way, was there any description included on the error code? If yes, please take a screenshot and share it with us so we can look into it.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Hey Jonka, 

I'm having a similar problem. 

You might be able to solve your problem by selecting 'print' and then selecting 'print to pdf' instead.

I'm trying to apply to a job. Same thing happened to me. Spend an hour filling out an application, carefully adding all the damn dates, blah blah. Finally I finished, tried to save as- same error code. Couldn't do crap with it. Couldn't save as a PDF, couldn't print, WTF? I spend 2 grand on a new Dell with Windows 10 and I can't even print a damn PDF. I'm so freaking frustrated I could SCREAM!!! I am computer literate. I've tried everything. Even communities and still can't even save a GD application to PDF. I could lose this job because I look like a complete idiot!!! "This chick is applying for a corporate job - she has a degree and she can't even save a PDF".  Lost THAT $80,000 job. Thanks a LOT Microsoft!  Losers.  Why do you have to change up your crap every year - to make more money? Why don't you just leave things the way they were? You are not making our lives any easier!!!!!!
