Windows 10: margins not printing correctly

    margins not printing correctly


    looking for some help please. Using a dell all in one desktop pc. A dell mono laser printer. just upgrade to win 10 (from 7).
    use "word" for all my company documents, and documents set with specific margins and headers.
    worked fine on win7, but now same document printing to slightly different layout, which is not good enough for my purposes.
    basically its printing smaller than before, so font smaller, and more importantly, gutter at bottom of margin much bigger.
    As I'm writing this it seems another way to describe the problem is that the page contents are being somehow shrunk.
    A4 paper with mostly text on .........

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...ApolloFly

    Hi, welcome::)

    Stupid question: did you update the Dell Printer Drivers and Software after you upgraded Windows from 7 to 10?
    ("Best practice" might be to cleanly uninstall and reinstall the printer drivers/software, making sure you have the most current, Win10-compatible version from the Dell site.)

    And is MS Office up to date and fully patched?

    It might help us to better help you if we knew a bit more about the printer model, version of M$ Office, and whether you are on 32-bit or 64-bit Windows, at least for starters....

    Cheers,
    MM
