If you are using Word or a similar word processing program, you can do this in Page Size and under the Margins tab. Even then, it won't translate to all your printing work.
You need to have the printer on, or at least able to see the little printer icon on the lower task-bar of your PC, by the time and all that. Click (or double click, depending on computer and OS), and select all available or active printers, I'm thinking it just one. Under the Printer menu, select options or settings, again depending on PC and printer, and there should be a Page Size tab,, where you can choose the format (portrait or landscape), font sizes and types, and scales. On the same window, there should be a margins tab where you can tweak the margins to do what you want them to do. Tell me if this was helpful, or if you run into any more issues.

It will not print Word documents. it pulls a blank piece of paper through. It will print in notepad


there is something wrong with your Word printer setup. Go to Word, then from the File menu select the Print option and when the print window opens see if the HP deskjet is selected as default printer. Then, in the upper right quadrant theres a button called Advanced Settings, or Prefferences (depending on your Word version). Click that button and check to see if the HP printer is set as On Line, and is set to print odd and even pages. Also, check the margins of the paper. Ink Jet printers cant print over the full page, there's always a need of some margin on each side of the paper, so you'll need to set the margins from all sides on at least 0.5 inches

HP Deskjet 5650 is printing off-center. The printing field is shifted to the right, so the right margin is non-existent and I lose a bit of the printing. How can I fix it?


I think the horizontal printing starting point can be adjusted by holding down buttons (??) when powering up. Right now my left margin is 3/8 inch too big -- photos have that much white space on left margin with borderless printing. I am trying to figure out the key combination.

Using XP, my HP Deskjet 5550 printer allowed me to set margins of 0.5 inches and the document printed correctly. With my new Vista 64-bit OS, I get a message that the margins are outside the printable area...


Try when the message comes up click on print anyway. I have to do this with my printer sometimes and when I click print anyway and do not try to correct it prints fine.

Printer not printing margins correctly


Set the margin unit of measurement to whatever you find most useful: inches, centimeters, millimeters, points, or picas.
  1. Choose File > Options > Advanced.
  2. Under Display, in the Show measurements in units of box, select the unit you want.

Bottom of page is cut off sometimes printing from vista computer


Hi- I'll try to solve this.

Go to the start menu and open the Control Panel. Double click on Printers. Right click the L7580 printer and choose "Printing Preferences" On the preferences window click on the "Advanced" tab. Make sure "Advanced Printing Features" is set to "Enabled" Under "Printer Features" turn "Minimize Margins" to "On"

This should solve the issue. If minimize margins is off, it will cut it off at the bottom.

Change margin hp f340


You can see the Print Preview of the application from where you are trying to print.
you can select the margins and see what is actually going to print. there is nothing to do with your printer. it is the applications on PC where you need to take care of.
