If you have Windows 8.1 or later, you'll have a built-in PDF printer. If you have an earlier version, such as Windows 7, simply download and install Adobe Reader DC to get the same function.

We're using Windows 10 here, which includes Microsoft Print to PDF.

First, open Windows File Explorer (the shortcut is Windows+E).

Navigate to the Jpeg files you want. You can select multiple files by clicking and dragging a rectangle around them, or by holding Ctrl and clicking on each one you want. Obviously the files need to be in the same folder to begin with.

Now right-click on any of the selected files and choose Print.

You can use the options available in the wizard to put multiple images on each page of the PDF, and even change the page size from A4 to another size.
