Thank you. To change the paper size configuration for your printer, load the paper into the printer, make sure it against the right part of the loading tray. Then make sure the media guide (green in picture) is slided all the way until it is against the left side of the special sized paper:


Then in Word:

  1. Click the office button in the upper left corner
  2. Click print
  3. Click the properties button
  4. Click the paper/features tab
  5. Select the paper size from the size is drop down list
  6. Press ok
  7. Press ok to print
