It depends on what you are printing, but generally this needs to be adjusted in the software you are using.
If you print pictures or photos, you have to find an option to scale the printout up, either during printing, or beforehand.
If you print PDF documents, in the Print dialog box there is an option to "fit printer margins" or "auto-adjust to printer size" or something to that effect in every PDF reader application. If however the document is formatted for your paper size it will not be scaled, and if it's formatted for an even bigger sheet size, it will scale down the printout.
If you print documents from Word, there's no easy way to make the printout bigger - you can change the font size to a larger one in the whole text, but chances are, that this will ruin the text formatting.
In Excel there is an option to scale everything by a given percentage, which will automatically tile the table into as many sheets as necessary. and then the area will be printed on as many paper sheets as necessary to get
There's no one solution, unless your printer driver has an option to do a fixed scaling - but this will usually be sensible only for enlarging printouts that occupy a smaller area on paper, and you want them to use the maximum paper area. I'm sorry, but you have to experiment a bit to get the hang of it.
Good luck!

I Need to ask how do I change my font larger I have a H P Photosmart 5510


The printer prints out what it sees in your document. You need to resize the font in your document, which the printer will then see and print.

Can i print a picture in just seconds


Reduce the size of the picture. it will help a little bit....but truely it depends upon the printer that how fast it prints,

one way to reduce size is to just open it in MS paint and then save back in jpeg format it will reduce the size upto 80 percent with no pixel damage.

take care

How do I change the print size my printer prints


The size font used by the printer is changed in the application that you are using to print.

Most applications have a fint setting that you can make the print larger or smaller.

I need to enlarge an original document on my photosmart C6280 All-in- One. Can this be done without going to the connected computer ?


Absolutely.

By default, your printer is setup to automatically detect the size of your paper. But you can change that to print up to an 8.5x11 sheet.

So, let's say you have a 4x6 photo you want to make full size, 8.5x11, you must change the settings. Here's how:

You'll want to access the printer's "Print Settings" by scrollong through the menu. Once there you'll scroll up or down to find The Print Layout screen. From there just choose the layout you want and that's it. You'll have to change it back to automatic to set things back to normal.

I work with these printers everyday, but here is a direct link to the manual from HP's website: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01150745.pdf
