How to save a created PDF to new location?

I'm trying to save a Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfDocument ​to my computer. Everything in the " Open and save PDF file in C# "​ page (  https://help.syncfusion.com/file-formats/pdf/open-and-save-pdf-file-in-c-sharp-vb-net?cs-save-lang=1&cs-lang=csharp#opening-a-corrupted-pdf-document ), saves the file using Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfLoadedDocument​, but i have programmatically created my PDFDocument using FixedDocument/XPS. I have no loaded pdf document. I have never used "MemoryStream".



private void SaveDocument()
        {
            Syncfusion.XPS.XPSToPdfConverter converter = new Syncfusion.XPS.XPSToPdfConverter();


            string xpsPath = "c:\\Stuff\\MyTest";


            XpsDocument xps = new XpsDocument(xpsPath, FileAccess.Write, CompressionOption.Maximum);
            System.Windows.Xps.XpsDocumentWriter writer = XpsDocument.CreateXpsDocumentWriter(xps);
            writer.Write(fixedDoc);
            xps.Close();


            FileStream fStream = File.OpenRead(xpsPath);
            Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfDocument pdf = converter.Convert(fStream);
            fStream.Close();


            //Save the PDF Document to disk.
            pdf.Save(I CANNOT ENTER A PATH HERE!!!);
            pdf.Close();
        }

How do i change this code so that when i run this function a PDF file will be created on the given location that i saved too? Noob friendly reply please, assume i know nothing, thanks.

Please refer to the code snippet below:

 //Create converter class

 XPSToPdfConverter converter = new XPSToPdfConverter();


string xpsPath = "../../../Data/source.xps";


            // An xps document is one or more FixedDocuments containing FixedPages

             FixedDocument fDoc = new FixedDocument();


            XpsDocument xps = new XpsDocument(xpsPath, FileAccess.Write, CompressionOption.Maximum);

            System.Windows.Xps.XpsDocumentWriter writer = XpsDocument.CreateXpsDocumentWriter(xps);


            writer.Write("source.xps");

            xps.Close();



            FileStream fStream = File.OpenRead(xpsPath);

            Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfDocument pdf = converter.Convert(fStream);

            fStream.Close();



            using (var doc = converter.Convert(fStream))

            {


                MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();

                doc.Save(ms); // write directly to the file


                File.WriteAllBytes("output.pdf", ms.ToArray());


                //Open the Pdf document

                System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("output.pdf");


                doc.Close(true);

            }
