2. enter printers and faxes
3. enter by right click into properties
4. enter paper size settings
5. set the paper size for the tray or trays and press update then apply and ok

Cannot fill a3 sheet

Have you set up the page as A3? If so, should be ok if you set the printer paper size to A3. If you set up the page on A4 you will need to tell the the printer to 'scale to A3' and it's best to say you want to preview before printing

How to set the paper size in the trays?

most are set by the trays itself, when you adjust the "guides" that go against the paper it adjust some levers on the side or back of the tray which push on some sensors behind the tray.
Some however you need to turn a dial in the tray to the paper size you need.
make sure the guides are snug against the paper, the dial or settings are correct and that there is no paper behind the tray.
Also I'm not sure what country you are from but in the US we do not use A4
