Shifter margins in Excel when I print a document.

    Shifter margins in Excel when I print a document.

    I'm trying to help a friend who is using windows 11 and who is having a hard time with her Epson printer and her windows.
    I tested the printer, it works very well from my home, but at her home, the margins are shifted to the right. In fact, all the printing is shifted to the right;
    I don't know if it only concerns Excel, I didn't have the time to test it.
    I had reinstalled the driver at the time but it didn't change anything, and now she's asking me about the problem.

    If you have an idea or the beginning of a solution...
    Thanks a lot.

    In Excel, use Print preview. It gives you the chance to check the Page setup, which includes Margins.
    If no other applications have printing problems then that check should be all you need.

    By the way, you should have posted your question in
    Microsoft Office and 365 - TenForums
    whilst non-MSOffice Windows 11 questions are dealt with in

    Best of luck,

    Actually I think I had already checked for the margin settings.
    If the problem wasn't just with excel, what could it be?
    (Sorry I can't confirm anything, I don't have his computer in front of me).
    Thank you very much.

    And sorry for posting in the wrong section.

    If it's not those margins and if it's not just Excel then you'll need to check the Printing preferences in
    Control panel, Devices and printers
    You can get there quickly by putting this in a shortcut -
    explorer.exe shell:::{A8A91A66-3A7D-4424-8D24-04E180695C7A}
    When you are there, right-click on the printer's icon & check Printing preferences
    - I suggest you note your settings & compare them with his
    - My own printer's preferences do not include anything that might cause the offset you describe but this is the only place where such things might be if the problem affects several applications.
