My printout has incorrect margins. What should I do?

  • Try these solutions:
    • Make sure you selected the correct paper size settings in your printing program and printer software.
    • Make sure you selected the correct margins for your paper size in your printing program.
    • Make sure your paper is positioned correctly for feeding into the printer.
    • If you're printing from a web browser, the pages may not print correctly due to the web page design. Check to see if there is a Printer Friendly Version (or similarly named) icon or link on the web page that you can click on.
    • Note: You can use the preview option in your printer software to check your margins before you print.
