Printing set up

by Billyjess / January 29, 2006 4:29 PM PST

We are unable to set the LH side margin when we print out emails. they are over to the extreme left of the page, and nowhere can we find how to change this, even thru print set up .. we just put in a new wee laser black and white today, and it is now actually chopping off half a letter on that left hand side. It is a mystery how to change that. It seems to be just when we print out emails we have received.

Can anyone help please??

printing prob
by Billyjess / January 30, 2006 4:23 AM PST

email browser is Internet Explorer, and we have just installed a Konica Minolta 1300W laser printer. But the left hand side printing that we can't change happened with the printer we replaced too, just those cheap Canon S1000SP

So I don't think it is perhaps in the 'printer' itself, if both were printing the same.

Perhaps a setup somewhere, but it is beyond me .. we are on XP Home

Do the basic stuff and check the printer setting, directly on the printer itself, see what are its defaults, many use a small LCD display to show such setting. Then check the system printer setting, when you press Crtl+P together it does page printout of what's on the display, you should see a window for "Print" check that for the best operation. -OR- under the printer setting via start->setting->printers/faxes->select printer(default)->rt. clcik, step thru setting available. Do only one setting or change to isolate if that was the problem and always save/apply before exiting in order for the change to take place. Since IE browser has it own tweaks, check those. MS knowledge base offers some details as offered by the other poster, his links should lead to others or query at MS support. I suggest under the IE browser taskbar check to find View->Encoding->Unicode(UTF-8) is deafulted.
