HP Envy 6200 unable to print 4x6 photos on 4x6 paper

HP Envy 6200 All in one
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I try to print a 300 dpi 4x6" photo/image it looks really good in the preview but the printed result does not keep within the paper. The photo is somehow scaled up and print outside the paper. I've tried all the settings in the print dialog I can think of.

Funny thing is if I print it on a normal A4 paper and hold up the 4x6" photo paper behind it fits like it should.

 

Any help on how to print a 4x6" onto a 4x6" paper 1:1 is greatly appreciated.

Well, did reinstall it all and after the installation I could not get the printer to use the photo paper tray when printing from HP Smart.

Using Microsoft Photos worked better and it printed on the photo paper with the exact same result as before, i.e outside the paper.

I even tried resizing the photo/image to make it smaller, but that did not change anything either.

 

This is so frustrating... I'm just wasting photo paper and prints trying to get this right.

The solution I came up with was to shrink the image and then extend the canvas to its original size, effectively creating a 0.5 cm border around the motive. I'll have to cut away the white afterwards but at least I get the full image, keeping the aspect ratio.
