Left side is cut off when print from email and web page


These kind of cut-off print issues are usually related to paper size. I suspect that your printer's settings are set to something different than the actual paper size being used. Check under the Advanced settings and look for paper size. It may be set to A4 or something when it should be US Letter, for example.

I have a hp photosmart c4280 and whenever i print it says margins are incorrect. how do i set them correctly so i can print documents.


Check the paper size at the printer properties on control panel.
You may be trying to print an A4 document to a printer configured to print on Letter size paper.
The document paper size should match the printer's paper size deffinition.

Can't enlarge font. The print is so small from a printing, that you can barely read it.


If the font size from the printer is smaller than on your screen then you need to adjust the font in the print options/advanced tab. The font rint out is defaulted to either 8 or 10. Go to Print Preview...Print options and go to the advanced tab and set print font size to Scale for A4 paper.

It sounds like you are printing to postcard size paper.

Increase font size on printed matter, i.e., emails, etc.


Go to your printer,right click on printer and go to Preferences, make sure you are using Letter size of 8.50x11.00. Under your paper quality print documents on 8.50x11.00 (scale to fit).

On IE go to view click Text size and select from smallest to largest text.
To change the Font size in IE go to control panel, open the display-open the appearance tab and change the font size.

Hi I'm desperate because I dont know how my password for my email (hotmail) got changed, and when I reseted it, I lost all my emails. They where very important emails. My inbox is on "0" again....


You might not be looking at your inbox. Particularly with Windows Live Hotmail's new interface, it's easy to overlook which mail folder you might have selected. If you've accidentally clicked on a folder that has nothing it, like "Drafts", it might appear that your inbox is empty. Before panicking, click on the "Inbox" icon on the left to make sure you're looking where you think you are. This also clears "full message view" which can obscure the list of messages in your inbox.
You've selected a display filter. Next to the "Sort by" item in the Windows Live Hotmail column header is a small icon that allows you to "Show only messages..." that meet a criteria. For example you could elect to show only messages that have an attachment. If there are none, then your inbox will appear empty. Once again, clicking on the inbox icon to the left will clear the filter and show you all messages in your inbox.
It just disappeared for reasons unknown. I hate to even have to include this as a possibility, but as best I can tell it happens. Recently it seemed to occur as accounts were switched from the old style MSN Hotmail to the new Windows Live Hotmail, but that should be over by now. Nonetheless, I've not been able to determine a common cause or reason. It just happens
You can try to contact customer support. The quickest route I found was this link: https://support.live.com/eform.aspx, and then click on Windows Live Hotmail. You can then submit a support request.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Have installed new printer a message pops up saying the printer is out of paper even though there is plenty of paper in tray.


Hey buddy,

Follow the below steps:

Step one:
Check the media and print settings
While the printer is on, remove the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.
Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, wrinkled, or bent. If the paper is curled, uncurl the paper by gently bending it in the opposite direction of the curl or replace the paper.
NOTE: Use plain paper in the unit until the issue is resolved.
Verify that all the paper is the same size and type.
Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
Verify that the stack of paper to be loaded in the unit contains between 10 and 25 sheets of paper.
NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the printer.
Insert the stack of paper into the printer and then gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper.
Adjust the paper settings in the print driver. The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.
Open a document in the application in which it was created.
Click File .
Click Print .
Click Properties . The Printer Properties dialog box displays.
Click the Paper/Quality tab.
In the Size is drop-down menu, select the size of the paper loaded in the unit.
In the Type is drop-down menu, select the type of paper loaded in the unit.
Click OK .
NOTE: These changes do not change the default print settings. The print settings will revert to the default print settings the next time the application is opened.
On the Print dialog box, click OK to print the document.
Try printing again. If the issue is not solved, continue on to the next section.
NOTE: If the issue is resolved and you want to print on another type of media, change the paper in the unit and then repeat steps 2 through 7 for the new media.
Step two: Clean the rollers
Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. See the product user guide for information about locating the rollers.
Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.
NOTE: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.
Make sure that any paper rollers that rest on the input tray, which are located behind the back rollers, are cleaned. A clean cotton swab, lightly moistened with water, might be necessary to reach these rollers.
Close the access door and plug in the power cord.
Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step three: Service the product
If you have completed all the steps and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.

Cause of this problem:

Any of the following issues can cause the error message to appear:
The paper trays are empty or overloaded.
The paper is curled.
The print side, or shiny side, of the paper is not loaded in the input tray face down.
The paper might not be engaged with the feed rollers.
The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly.
The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product.
The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
The rubber paper-feed rollers are coated with dust.

Printing from e-mail


The problem you are having is caused because you are printing from a web based email and just clicking print prints the email, the frame and all the advertising on the page.

to avoid this try the following:

1. Doubleclick the email to open it, not just use a preview pane.
2. Highlight just the text that you want to print. (You can click the cursor at the beginning of the text, hold down the CNTL Key and then press down arrow till all lines of text you want are highlighted)
3. Click FILE, PRINT on the browser menu (DO NOT CLICK THE PRINT ICON)
4. A Print window should appear, in the PRINT RANGE section, click SELECTION, then click OK. At this time, only the text you selected should print.

Hi, I am using ms word 2007 and need an a3 sheet format. Its not in the page set up drop down menu and the only solution I have is to customise my page size. Even doing this however, and increasing my...


The print sizes available are dependent on the printers installed.
If you don't have an a3 printer installed on your computer, there won't be a A3 option in word.
if you install a standard pdf printer like cutePDF(simulates printer, but instead of printing document on paper, it generates an adobe pdf-file from the document) the option should become available in your dropdown.
