Preferred Solution: Windows Print Server Default Paper Size

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have 2 printers on my PC. 1 is a receipt printer with 58mm wide paper. The other is an HP1410 with letter size paper. The receipt printer is set as the default printer since it is used most. But sometimes I need to do a print of the web page used for the
Point Of Sale. When I select the HP printer for the output, the page is printed but only 58mm wide instead of letter size. Likewise if I set the HP1310 as the default printer, then when I select the receipt printer as the output, it tries to print letter size.
IE does not appear to change the paper size when a printer other than the default is selected. It ALWAYS uses the paper size of the default printer irregardless of the printer selected for output.

Note that Chrome works correctly and will adjust the page size to the default for whichever printer is selected but IE will not
Also note that NotePad has the same issue.I haven't tested with edge but then it won't support Activex either.

I am limited to using IE because the credit card scanner used with the receipt printer requires Activex support. My only workaround now is to switch to using Chrome whenever I need to print to any printer other than the Windows default printer. There was
a similar old issue "IE7 Default Paper Size" that never really had a resolution. It reported a similar issue between printers with Letter and A4 paper sizes. Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure which sub-forum to post this; apologies.

I want to print this image, 1:1 precisely: http://cdn.arstechnica.net/wp-conten...hone-scale.pdf

In Europe we use the A4 image size; and I guess the original was formatted to US paper size (different). I am not a printing expert; do I need any sizing or adjustments?

To add insult to injury I even do not own a printer; I have to bring this thing to a print shop and possibly instruct them accordingly. By the law of large numbers, the print shop will likely use Windows; the 7th.

A:How to print image from US paper size to A4 size 1:1, precisely?

The print shop should have no problem adjusting the print size on there equipment.
The adjustment are not made with Windows 7 they are made with the printer program that came with the printers they use.

I am in the UK, using a PC running Windows XP Home Edition with IE6.

Like the rest of the world outside North America (as far as I know), we in Europe don't use Letter size paper, so I want to set my default page size to A4. I've made sure that all my regional settings are on UK, and that my printer settings in Control Panel are on A4. I've succeeded in changing the defaults in Office (well, Word at least - haven't tried the others yet) but can't find a way to do it in Internet Explorer / Outlook Express.

I know how to change the page size for a single session by opening IE and going into File > Page Setup, but the problem is that I have to do this EVERY TIME I OPEN INTERNET EXPLORER - it always defaults back to Letter size. (Sorry for shouting, but I've posted this question in a couple of other places and people just keep telling me to do what I've already done, so I want to make it clear that this isn't working for me!)

I can't find anything about this problem on the Microsoft Knowledge Base, and my PC supplier seems to be stumped by it too.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Hi
I have a set of PCs, each connected to a label printer via USB.  I need to set them all to have a non-standard default paper size (7.2cm x 3.7cm rather than the standard the driver gives me) for all users. 

The users aren't using Office, so amending the standard normal.dot won't help them - they each pick up the paper size from the device in 'devices and printers'.  There are a lot of pcs, and a lot of users, so even though it sticks for each user on each
machine, they hotdesk, so could be at any machine.
I've hunted the registry, but can't find a default paper size in anything obvious.

I have a print server running 2003 standard sp2, I have been looking for a way to allow helpdesk staff install and manage printers without logging into the server and without adding them to the admin group.

So I added them to the power users group and the print operators group, that worked fine they were able to UNC ( \\servername ) to the server and install printers, drivers, as well as uninstall drivers? printers ect????.
Now the problem??? this works great from an XP box, but when we try it from a windows 7 machine we get access denied. More specifically it acts like it is going to install the printer then when it comes to the driver installation part it fails ?Printer driver was not installed. Access is denied.?

No changes have been made to the permissions I can log into an XP machine with my profile and it works fine log out go to a Windows 7 machine use the same credentials and I get the above message access is denied. I am an admin of both machines on the windows 7 machine I have UAC turned off completely. Running XP Pro SP3 & Windows 7 pro both are 32 bit machines.

I should also add that I have made the necessary group policy changes to allow printer operators to Load/Unload device drivers and under the local policies/security options I ensured that the Prevent users from installing printer drivers was Disabled.

Any help would be much appreciated.

A:Excel Paper Size

Excel 2002 determines the paper size by reading the settings from the printer driver. This differs from earlier versions I believe.

The answer would likely be in the printer driver itself, is it the correct one? If so, it should return the required sizing options for selection.

I've got a tough one for you this time. Well, maybe.

I need to create a custom paper size for an Epson LQ-590 dotmatrix printer. Currently running Windows XP Pro, and got the latest printer driver from Epson today.

I've gone into the "Printers and Fax" window, opened the "Server Properties" window in the "File" drop down menu. In the "Forms" tab, I've created and saved the paper size I need.

I go back to the "Properties" for my Epson, get to the "advanced printing preferences" and open the dropdown menu for paper size....and my form is not there.

What the heck am I doing wrong? This is the same procedure I used for my previous printer (OkiData Microline) and everything was cool.

Is there a way to force all documents sent to the printer to be printed on the A4 paper rather than the printer asking for US letter size.

I have asked the xerox printer supplier for help, they have configured the printer to do as i ask, but it is being over ruled somewhere along the process. I have told all staff to select A4 as the default paper size both in the word application and in the printer properties tab. I'm not sure what else to do, I have heard mention of doing something with the printer drivers on the server, but am afraid that is a bit beyond my abilities, I am happy to google and give things a go, but I do not have full admin rights where I work and would have to be confident that what I am trying, will work; and be able to fully explain it to the computer illiterates that do have full admin rights.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows Vista. I have also been successfully using an HP Photosmart B209a "all in one" printer with a wireless connection. I began getting low ink messages, so installed new HP cartridges. When I try to align the new cartridges, I get a message that says the alignment failed, but I can still use the printer. However, when I try to print any document I have generated on my computer, the printer picks up the paper and goes through the machinations of printing, but when it spits out the paper, it is blank. When I print a test page, it works. When I print a page from a website, it works. It will copy a document. It simply won't print anything I generate using my word processor or spreadsheet (I use Microsoft Works).

HP's Monitor program says that the computer is ready.

I have used HP Solutions Center, but nothing it suggests has made any difference. I have checked my wireless connection and it is working, obviously, or the printer wouldn't be getting the message to print, as it surely is, since it starts, picks up the paper and goes through the whole process of printing. However, nothing comes out except a blank piece of paper.

Hi fellow members,

I'm facing a problem about my printer under Windows 8.1. I cannot create custom paper size.

My previous printer is a HP P2035 printer. According to HP, the driver is built into Windows 8.1 and thus does not offer any driver for w8.1. The printer is detected correctly and I'm able to print, except I cannot create a custom paper size.

I raised this issue on the HP forum and a couple of members explained that the printer is pretty old and thus there is no incentive for Microsoft nor HP to develop a driver for Windows 8.1

Then I change to Fuji Xerox DocuPrint p355db. Again this printer is able to print just fine by Windows 8.1 built in driver, except the driver just won't allow me to create a custom paper size!

Hello, I am hoping that there might be a Xerox tech here or someone who can help me to override the printer defaults somehow. I have a Xero Phaser 7700 printer. We recently acquired a lot of custom size paper to print large tri-fold brochures with. This paper is 9" x 18". The Phaser 7700 can print up to Extra Tabloid 12" x 18" but I can't seem to find a driver that will allow me to either select a custom size within the print window or on the printer itself. I really need to use this paper, as I got at least 100 cases of it. Any help or suggestions with be GREATLY appreciated! The computer doing the printing is running windows xp pro sp3. I have gone into the printers area on the computer and made a custom size, it just is not an option when printing to my Phaser. Also, if I tell the Phaser through the front panel that I have 12x18 tabloid in the tray and try to load my 9x18, it flases yellow and says paper mis-match. Thank you again very much!!!

Hi,

print size to use the specific custom print size; but it still acts as if it's printing A4.

Can someone shed some light as to what's going on?

Hi everyone,

I've had chance to try out Mac OS and I liked how the OS had set windows. Every window after maximizing looked like on the screen. Even Safari for Windows appears like this and I really like it. I would like apps to appear like this always without resizing them myself. Is it possible ?

Thanks,

Greenie

A:Set default Windows size/position

I don't understand what you mean. You want to maximize the Windows, but not to the full width of the screen, like in the attached picture?

I have a HP photo smart B110 series printer, and recently when I send a print job to it that has multiple pages and is quite detailed it always gives a paper jam error.
It occurs when printing PDF files, long word documents... basically anything that has a lot of info. As it is going slowly through once the first page is about 2/3rd printed the Jam error occurs. The next sheet has not moved at all so clearly isn't causing an issue.
If I set the quality to Fast Draft it prints with no problem, but obviously it isn't as good a copy.

Can any one shed any light on this issue please?

Thanks

Ben Thomson
 

A:Paper Jam issue with slow print jobs

Sounds like a hardware issue. Paper moving fast through the printer works fine. Paper moving slow fails.

I preparing a display that requires printing very light ink on black paper. I have tried white, although a lack of ink makes sense on white paper, yellow and light orange. Looking very closely at the finished sheet I do not see any evidence of any ink being deposited. However, I can see evidence of black being deposited. The printer is a HP PhotoSmart Premium C310a. Incidentally, my Hp series D2600 acts the same way. Both printers print all colors when white paper is used. Any ideas?

A:Trying to print light fonts on black paper

To get even a light gray text you would have to use black ink on white paper. The "color" white is actually the complete absence of any color at all, so most consumer printers have to turn of all the color cartridges and rely on the paper to produce the "white".

You could buy a printer that uses actual white ink, but I bet they're expensive!

But at $276.99 for just the cartridge you might want to consider a white crayon...:-)
