How to select destination as “Save as PDF”


I am new to UiPath and would like to ask the expert here.
when click on the print button for the website, i need the Robot to select “Save as PDF”.

I have try to use select item but there is error . Thus , i use an alternative way which is in correct.

step1 : click on the destination
step2 : send hot key move down
step 3 : enter

If the Pc installed with new printer, then the move down on step 2 might not correct.

thus, need advise from the expert here.
