Here is my situation. I have this PDF file that when at 100% is far too large to fit on the screen, and I have to set the zoom to like 25% to make it normal. I'd like it to be so that at 100% it would be normal. Any ideas?
Can you print it to a PDF? No, seriously. Open it in the reader, and print it to something like PDF Creator. Can't use Chrome, because it knows you opened a PDF and short circuits the print-to-PDF feature to just resave the file.
Just to add to what others have said, Win10 ships with a PDF printer by default. Of course, the PDFs it prints are way too large in file size. But it'll work just to test the theory. And there are a few free PDF printers online that do a better job for the real deal after the testing is done.
I've had a lot of success with Avidemux - ignore the name, it works with most formats - it's certainly the fastest I've seen at cutting / joining, and because it copies streams where at all possible it also doesn't reduce the quality in the way that some do.
It's also free under the GNU licence: www.avidemux.org
Extracting a chunk is simple:
Open the file (CTRL+O or "File...Open"
Move the slider to the start point. Press the "A" button
Move the slider to the end point. Press the "B" button.
Set the output format (annoyingly, it always defaults to AVI)
Save the file (CTRL+S or "File...Save") under a new name. This normally takes seconds or a minute.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

I second that. I'm running it right now on Windows 10. Works same as always. However, Microsoft this year disable the full download link for Windows Live Essentials 2012. Therefore, you have to do some creative google searches to find it. The file name is "wlsetup-all.exe." Watch out, because it comes in many different languages. So, you might have to download a few to find the language you want. The English version I have is 134,112KB.
After Effects has a free 30-day trial. After that's it's $20 a month. If you're serious about video editing, it's worth it. If it's just a hobby or for fun then maybe not, still have a free trial though.
