I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I have MS Office Student/Home Edition.

After a recent MS automatic update the color display on screen and in print preview suddenly stopped working in Word & Excel. It was working fine prior to the update.

I have googled and searched and cannot find anything to help.

I tried a repair from the install disk, checked my computer display settiings & verified that I am running the most up-to-date video drivers.

Has anyone else experienced this issue and is there a solution?

Securing Microsoft Outlook on the Windows PC (may also be applicable for Mac users).

I am unaware of any currant threats against Outlook Desktop Client, however: With all of the current threats, especially spam, Ransomware, malicious documents, .zip attachments, and even iframes and JavaScript propagating Ransomware and Malware, have you considered disabling both the Attachment Preview and/ or the Reading Pane (The part generally on the right side where you can view the message without double-clicking the message to open. That way, if you are unsure of the sender, you can move it to Junk before opening. I have done out of caution.

There have been 0-days before and they are likely to be a problem in the future as both Internet Explorer, Office and I believe Windows all have OLE integrated in them. It's also wise, as when you Open Outlook and it downloads messages, what happens if the last message it downloads is malicious and you have both the Attachment Preview and Reading Pane enabled? The email will displayed, possibly the attachment previewed (within a sandbox of some sorts such as IE). There is a potential for exploitation.

I have an issue with Windows Explorer and the Preview Pane.  When I enable the preveiw pane and try to preview a Word Document it crashes Word even when Word is not open, this is only happening to Word documents all other types of documents can display

I'm trying to help a friend for whom the Print Preview feature in MS Word has suddenly started displaying the preview at 25% scale -- much too small. The normal default scale should be something that displays the entire page at a scale that fills the monitor. On my computer the default scale is 70%. She has no idea how hers became changed, but it happens now every time and with every document.

The scale can be changed by keying in a different number in the Zoom option on the tool bar, but that does not then get set as a default and needs to be repeated each time the Print Preview feature is used.

Any ideas?

My Microsoft Word 2000 program developed a recent problem. Whenever I tried to do a Print Preview it takes a long time (even if the page is blank) and then when responding it says not enough system resources and asks to close the application. I have recently deleted two viruses (BugBear and Sofer.F?) but can't see the connection of why it's happening. (It started happening before the virus's extraction.) Otherwise Microsoft Word 2000 operates normally.

Thanks for your time and interest!

Hello all,

First I made some contents and drew a border from Home > Font > all Borders on an Excel 2010 file. So it became like below image (capture1). After that I wanted to print it so went to File > Print to see its preview. But the problem is that the lines between tue and wed and also between mon and tue are not shown neither in preview nor when printing. The height of row 7 until 17 is 24 (that is 32 pixel) but heights of the rest of the rows are normal (20 pixel).

Any idea about why those lines aren't shown?

Hello everyone,I usually use Microsoft Word XP professional (on my laptop) to do my paper work and when I finish everything I copy my files to my desktop computer (bigger screen) so I can review the paper for the last time and print it. My problem occurred when my printer started printing something completely different from the page that appeared on my screen. It's the same page but the first line would start for example at 2 cm from the top of the page, the footnotes would be in different order like this: 1, 4, 2 , 5, 3. I realized that the Print layout view on Microsoft Word 2007 is showing something while the Full screen reading is showing something completely different. It's what I see in the full screen reading that gets printed!I can off course uninstall office 2007 and install another version but I hate to leave this problem unsolved. Does anyone have an idea about this?Thanks in advance.Take care.

For that reason I would like to get the preview pane in Explorer at the bottom of the screen for having a readible preview for example of a pdf (because the new 16:9 screen are getting so low, and thus so narrow in portrait).

Hi there,

I am not sure if this question can be answered here or if it's in the right section but this is my problem.

I am currently using the Word 2007 Content Control Toolkit to add content controls to a Word 2007 document. These controls are then replaced later by XML that is received by a Windows Service. This all works wonderfully.

The problem I encounter is creating new documents can become cumbersome as they have to create a document, add tags, upload to a remote server and then generate a document using a external system. All these steps can be removed from the design process by having a Print Preview option that actually replaces the data as it would on my Windows service.

Does anybody know how I can accomplish this? Do I need to write VB script or is there a way to “place” the xml over the controls?

Any help in this regard would be appreciated.

Hi everyone

I have Office 2008 for Mac.

I'm trying to print a two page document, the print preview is fine but when the document comes out of the printer, the text/info from the first page has been duplicated into the layout of the second page with the text that should be there totally gone. This means I only ever get 1 usable page and none of the vital second page information.

I've swapped printers, uninstalled and reinstalled all my software, done my office updates, restarted my computer, even tried a duplicate word document and am still not having any luck. My printer company is adamant its a Word problem.

Can anyone help?

Microsoft explains that only Windows Insiders will get it

Microsoft yesterday released a brand new tool that allows Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 computers to install Windows 10 Technical Preview automatically via Windows Update, thus making everything faster and easier for those who want to see what's new in the next OS version.

Some users, however, thought that the next Windows 10 preview build would actually be shipped to standard users as well, which kind of makes things worse, especially since these testing tidbits are usually unstable and come with bugs that affect productivity.

Gabriel Aul, head of the Windows Insider group, explained in a series of tweets that the next Windows 10 Technical Preview build would only be shipped to Windows Insiders, so standard/ordinary users would stay on their existing OS version without any update available for their PCs.

Hi there
So far everything installed and working 100% and this on a small netbook !!. I had NO issues with the VM i built earlier -- now this is on a REAL machine.

Apps can be unpinned from the metro start tiles so only those you want need be there and by pinning something to the task bar then dragging and dropping to the desktop makes a quick way of having stuff you want on the desktop in the old way.

I like uncluttered stuff -- the apps search is fine for those I don't use often --- Control Panel however should be on the Start panel by default. You can Pin it to the start by searching for it in apps then RIGHT mouse click and then Pin to start --easy !!.

Hello to all!

It has been a while since this problem first occurred. Now it has become unbearable. When I try to print, use print preview or enter page setup, Microsoft Word 2003 freezes. The same thing also happens with other Office 2003 programs like Microsoft Excel 2003.

I am not sure if there is a problem with my printer driver (the printer is an HP L2600n by the way) as I have reinstalled it many times AND I have no problem using it as a network printer and can print the same word documents FINE from laptops or other desktop computers in the house. Thus I know that the documents aren't corrupted. I can also print .pdf documents fine from this computer. I think this problem started when my laser printer driver 'disappeared' and when I tried to reinstall it I got a spool-related error. I reinstalled the spool driver and then when I tried to print a .doc file I was unable to do so. The problem may most likely be linked to Office 2003 itself but I have tried options like deleting the data key and renaming the normal.dot template, all which have failed to alleviate the problem.

I think that is all the information I can offer to assist anyone trying to help me with this matter, and I hope that the problem can be fixed without me having to reformat or something like that.

Thank you in advance.

P.S Not sure if this will also come in handy but my OS is Windows XP Professional SP2.

Help getting & installing a compatable driver for new Photosmart 7520.

Need to have 'Print Preview' in Printer Preferences. Newer Photosmart Printers have very few options under Preferences.

Have tried drivers for Office Jet 6100 & Deskjet 69800 as suggested in HP forums. Neither has 'Print Preview' in Printing Preferences.

My previous Photosmart C310 died, bought the 7520 as a replacement. If I remember correctly, when I upgraded to Windows 7 with the older Photosmart C310 I had to download an alternate driver. That printer worked fine for over 2 years with all the preferences. I failed to note the driver that worked with the C310.

Hope someone can help, or I'll return this one to Costco along with the $130.00 worth of ink.

OK, this one is a twist on a very often reported problem on these forums:

Internet Explorer 11 will not print and just shows an empty print preview page. (Edge works/prints fine).

However in this case I know what caused the issue but not how to resolve it. This issue CANNOT be repaired by the commonly offered 3 or 4 step Microsoft tips that are all over this site and elsewhere (disable protected mode, Low folder permissions, etc, etc,)

Here is the complete story: New laptop HP Z Book 17 with factory installed Windows 10 Pro. All worked great when first run. No issues. I installed Office 2010, Quicken, AutoCAD, Chrome ........ etc. All worked fine.
Then I installed a specialist program, 'Helvar Workshop' - which is a lighting control application that I need for my work and originally written for XP.
After installing the Workshop program it worked fine but I was no longer able to print or preview in IE11. This is not a new issue to me as it also broke the same functions with IE10 and 11 running on Windows 7. I only ever 'resolved the problem then by doing a system restore in Windows 7 and ultimately installing an XP VM to run 'Workshop'. In that configuration it did NOT break the print functions in XP's IE 6 or 7.

Can anyone tell me how to change the default to be "100%" every time I enter print preview?


A:IE7 Print Preview - change print size

I think this is controlled by your printer. From the IE7 FAQ page:
" Why do I have to reset the print options every time I open Internet Explorer?
Printing changes made within Internet Explorer are always temporary. To make changes permanently, you need to change them in Windows. For information about changing Windows print options, see Choosing print options."

I didn't see anything in that link particularly useful though ... and when I tried to simply force my printer to print at 100% through the print driver settings, it would always reset itself to Actual Size. Worth a shot for you perhaps, via Properties > Advanced > Printing Defaults > Effects (but that's when using my HP LaserJet 2420 ... will be different depending on make and model of printer, and some printers may not even support this option)

You may need to contact your printer manufacturer if it's bugging you that much, see whether your printer can handle it

I have created a document in Excel 2016 with 5 work sheets.
Each worksheet comprises 2 pages.
I want the document to be able to print out as 5 x 2-sided sheets.
The Print Preview appears fine, with 10 pages, and all in the correct sequence.
After completing the document at home, I printed it on a Canon printer and all was fine.
However, at work, using an HP printer, the Print Preview still appears fine, but pages print in wrong sequence; with some printing 2-sided and others single-sided, although the content for each page appears correctly on the printed sheet.
If I save the file as a PDF, the pages are correctly ordered, and print out as 5 x 2-sided sheets as intended.
(OS is Windows 10)
I've created as 5 worksheets to allow flexibility of use with the document... Worksheet 1, for example will only ever need to be saved as a 2-page PDF; sometimes only 2 or 3 of the worksheets need to be printed, and other times all sheets need to be printed.

Is the Excel file somehow retaining some of the printer profile from when it was originally created which is conflicting with a different printer profile? or is there a simpler explanation.

Any help gratefully accepted... I've spent hours trying to solve the problem and wasted hundreds of sheets of paper!

Hi all,

Brand new here, so bear with me.....I'm trying to enlarge a Web page (in Print Preview) so that its legible but when I actually print it, it remains at about 75%. I've set the Print Preview to 200%, but it stills prints so small that the page is illegible. What am I doing wrong? The odd thing about this is that when I try the same thing in Mozilla Firefox, it prints just fine! Is this a Microsoft problem or am I just missing something?

Thanks in advance,


A:Printing a "Print Preview" screen in IE6

Beats me, the "print preview" size should only affect the preview, not the actual printed document.

However the actual text/font size on the page can be adjusted by pressing the ctrl key and using the mouse wheel to scroll up or down. This should carry over to the printed document.

When I preview an OE e-mail attachment (e.g. a document) by simply clicking on the attachment, then click on the printer icon to print it, it appears with several other pictures (.jpg's). I'm not sure where they're coming from. I've tried searching for those file names on the C: drive, but XP tells me it can't find any such files. The only time I see these pictures is when I try to print directly from the preview screen (the print wizard). I guess I wouldn't care, except that some of them appear to be banners from porn sites. At first, I thought they were coming in with the document I was trying to print. Then, I sent myself an e-mail with a picture attached. When I previewed that picture and tried to print it, the same bogus pictures appeared. They could be hung up from a prior virus problem. How do I get rid of them?

I am using Corel Painter & since I installed the newest upgrade the print preview does not work--goes directly to print. uninstalled it & now the other versions won't preview either.

A:no print preview

Hold down the shift key when you start the program. That will reset the defaults – at least on some versions.

Hi,can Win8 C.P. be installed without removing Win8 D.P.

I guess not, but since until now my Revodrive 3 X2 gave me problems with the Win8 D.P. install, i hate to do a fresh try with the Consumer Preview.

I would loose the Win8 is am using now.

When starting the setup, hard drive is not recognized.....

Any thoughts anyone?



A:installing Win 8 consumer Preview over Developer Preview

Yes, you can upgrade to CP from DP but I would suggest you to do a clean install.
If you want to upgrade from DP, use this link: Download Windows 8 Consumer Preview
For clean install, burn the required .iso image from this link:
Windows 8 Consumer Preview ISO formats
