    Changing the default paper size


    How do you change the default paper size from letter to A4. ALL the paper I buy in the UK is A4 and the letter size, although only slightly out, throws out my formatting, particularly when I do a mail merge or print a document with a header or footer. Again, Help.

    Open Settings app, select Devices. Select your printer, select Manage:

    Hello Kari, thank you for replying. I think it may have worked - finger crossed. I couldn't get into 'manage' in the way you suggested as there was no corresponding key when I went into Devices but I went in at the bottom of the screen and in again several times - sort of round and round - and seemed to arrive at a similar screen - and have changed it to A4 which was still there when I closed and re-opened word, so thank you very much.
