Margin setting in ''Setup'' in the File menu doesnt change

After typing a doc in Word, I notice that halfway down the page it jumps to a new page. Whilst trying to set the margin using SETUP in the File menu a dialogue box with the message ''one or more margins are set outside the printable area of the page. Choose the ''fix'' button to increase the appropriate margins.'' After choosing ''fix'', the bottom of the page margin reads 7.41'' and I cannot change it. Pls help!!!

The printer will not print on the half inch left edge of the page.

go to settings and change the left margin to 0.0. if in Word, then file->page setup and set the margins to what you want, left margin to 0.0 in your case.

    here is solution..
    Solution Step one: Make sure that the product prints correctly
    1. Print a self-test page from the product control panel, from Windows, or from the product software. (See the product user guide, available online, for instructions to print a self-test page.)
    2. Check to make sure that black and all colors (if using a color product) print on the self-test page.
      • If the self-test page does not print correctly, an issue might exist with the product hardware. See the product user guide, available online, for further troubleshooting steps.
      • If the self-test page prints correctly, continue with the next step.
    Step two: Determine what portion of the page is set to print Many Web pages use frames. Frames divide the screen into multiple windows. Follow these steps to determine what portion of the page is set to print.
    1. Click the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop. The Internet Explorer window opens.
    2. On the File menu, click Print . The Print dialog box opens.
    3. Click the Options tab to view the print settings.
    4. Change the settings if required, and then click Print .
    Step three: Change the Encoding setting in the Web browser
    1. Click the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop. The Internet Explorer window opens.
    2. On the Menu bar, click View .
    3. Click Encoding to view a list of encoding options.
    4. Check the Encoding settings.
      • If Auto Select has a check mark next to it, click to clear the check box.
      • If Western European Windows does not have a check mark next to it, select it.
    Try printing again. If the issue continues, proceed to the next step. Step four: Check the page setup settings for the Web browser Web pages are designed to be viewed at a certain screen resolution. If the resolution of the screen is lower than the resolution of the Web page, the whole screen might not display or might not be printed.
    1. Make sure that Internet Explorer is open.
    2. On the File menu, click Page Setup . The Page Setup dialog box opens.
    3. Review the Margins information.
    4. Make sure that the margin settings are greater than or equal to the minimum printable region margins for the product. The margins vary slightly among HP All-in-One products. As a general rule, the settings should be at least the values shown in the following table. Side Margin Top Margin Bottom Margin 6.3 mm (0.25 inch) 6.3 mm (0.25 inch) 6.3 mm (0.25 inch)
    5. Make necessary changes to the margin settings.
    6. Click OK to save the changes.
    Try printing again. If the issue continues, proceed to the next step. Step five: Print using Smart Web printing software HP Smart Web Printing is fast, free, downloadable software that enhances how Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox print Web pages. Use HP Smart Web Printing for the following tasks:
    • Select text and graphics from any Web site
    • Save paper by combining portions of numerous Web pages
    • Preview and modify clips before printing

    Envelope margin error

    have you adjusted the page setup on your software?
    I'm assuming you're using Word to print a mail merge. yes?

    Check that the margins are setup properly in the "word document"
    Go undetr file, page setup, and confirm the envelope size is set properly.
    Check the page setup in the printing preferences.
    File, Print, Printing Preferences.

    The printer accepts whatever margins microsoft word tells it to use.

    Best wishes

    Margin problem

    Problem---Printer prints email on the very edge of the paper and leaves off the first 3 letters of every word down the edge of that margin. If you have Windows Live Mail forget trying to fix it from there. Clicking File will not give you the page setup option you are looking for. Go to the bottom of the screen, click "all programs", look for and click "Internet Explorer", click File, click "page setup". A screen comes up in which you can change the margins. The left margin is probably set on .25. Change it to .75. Okay. Go back and run a test email.

    Paper margin problem in pagemaker application

    Do you mean the left margin is too large so all the content is shifted to the right and off the page? If this is the case, it is probably a setting in Pagemaker. In the file menu, choose "page setup" or "print setup". Check the paper size. Check the margins.
