During this section we are going to be taking-a-look at printing now printing may not seem like a big deal to you. File Print or a single button press. But there are several options that we can get into to really make our document more presentable with print setup options.
So, let us take-a-look at first how you can get into print preview and see what your document looks like right now by default. Before we touch any of the options let us see what it looks like.
So, to get in the print preview I am going to go to my File tab, Top left corner of my screen.
Now I am going to go down to print in 2013 as well as 2010 and 2016 the latest release print preview is built right into the backstage view.
If you are on 2007 you go down to print this actually still opens up a another window like you did in all the earlier versions of Excel but your aim is out of print preview and I can see my document. What it will look like if I were to print it right now and I can identify several things that I would like to fix about this document. Right now, it is so small.
My documents in portrait mode so maybe I want to think about changing the orientation of this page to get my document larger because it is kind of wider than it is tall right. So, by flipping the page putting on side I have some wider space that I can start to work with.
The margins maybe I want to start messing around with the margins and make those wider. I want to add a header footer to this page. You know there is various considerations that we can have as we get this document ready to be printed, I do not want to do just default like this. Maybe I do not want to put the spreadsheet on it is own page and the chart on its own page make a nice and big and isolate the two of information on their respective pages.
So, we are going to take-a-look at these features and many more within our Print set up options. Then get ready, Let’s take-a-look at these options.
