    Learning Objectives

    • How to print preview a document to review for problems, plus how to print from the print preview screen.

    In the Print Preview, you can see what your document looks like before printing. It helps you to make your paper looks perfect and organized which saves more papers .

    In particular, if a part of your document is in the area in which the printer cannot actually print, the Print Layout view may show your text anyway, but Print Preview probably will not.

    Students must print preview their documents before printing to make sure that the document looks perfect and to avoid wasting papers.

    To start Print Preview, do the following steps.
