I have tried to get rid of the margins from several programs but every time I make a print of a standing A4 format I got margins. 5mm on each sida and 2cm on the right side. Why is it not possible to rezise the photo to fit A4 format correctly? What am I doing wrong?

Welcome to the HP Community.

 

The printer supports reasonable margins and supports borderless printing as stated in the Specs.

 Product Specifications for the HP ENVY Photo 6230 All-in-One Printer (K7G25B)

 

Section Paper Handling

Borderless printing
Yes (up to 8.5 x 11 in, 216 x 297 mm)

 

and

Print Margin Bottom (A4)3 mm
Print Margin Left (A4)3 mm
Print Margin Right (A4)3 mm
Print Margin Top (A4)3 mm

 

Uneven Borders

 

Examples,

Borderless printing is dependent on the printer model.  Some printers only support Borderless printing on certain Paper Sizes and / or Paper Types (for example, Photo or Brochure paper).

 

Border and Borderless printing depends on whether the shape of the original image / photo matches the shape of the paper used to print that image / photo.

 

Example - HP Smart - Windows - Simple Photo Print - Border - A4

HP_Smart_W10_Border_Print_A4_1HP_Smart_W10_Border_Print_A4_1

 

Example - HP Smart - Windows - Simple Photo Print - Borderless - 4x6 inch

You are welcome.

 

Well, mine is a different printer - the 9025 does just about anything a printer can do.

That might not be relevant - your printer does appear to include at least of of the necessary options to make this work.

 

At this writing:

HP Smart Windows - Version 131.1.242.0

 

The initial selection for Borderless is selected in HP Smart > Print Photos

Select and open image 

Main print menu page

Set Orientation, Paper Size, Photo Size, Select a Layout

Next option = Borderless Printing > ON or OFF

 

No Joy?

Where are the missing setups?

Where are the shortcuts and other options in More Settings?

 

Assuming the features and options are available in your printer,

If you have not done so,

Try / Consider

Install the Full Feature Software / full driver printer software

 

=====================================================================================

Printer Software and Printer Application

 

Install either the HP Smart Application first OR install the Full Feature Software / full driver printer software first.

No wrong way - be sure to install both to have "full coverage" and access to your printer features.

 

The full driver printer software supports printing and scanning for Office documents, PDF, Photos (Images), and other print or scan software.  (Print Assistant and HP Scan)

 

HP Smart - Windows - provides scanning and printing for PDF and Photos / images with options in More Settings for Shortcuts and other settings.

 

============================================================================

>>> Check / Install the Full Feature Software / full driver printer software

 

The full driver provides the foundation on which other programs and printing software depend.

 

Preparation - Install Full Driver Printer Software

 

If you have not done so,

In addition to the HP Smart application,

Install the Full Feature Software / full driver printer software for the printer.

HP Smart and other print software / applications benefit from having the full driver installed.

 

Printer Software Check

 

Notes

If the full driver printer software is installed, you will see the printer listed in Control Panel > icon view > Programs and Features.

 

 

The installation of the printer software adds two shortcut icons to the Desktop.

The Printer Assistant is named for the printer and provides access to Print , Scan , and Tools

HP Scan is named for itself and provides a direct call to the HP Scan software.

 

Programs_and_Features_Printer_Desktop_Icons_4Programs_and_Features_Printer_Desktop_Icons_4

 

Next...

Printer software not installed - OR - (still) installed but not working?

 

NOTE:  If the printer software shows installed but is not working as expected,

Uninstall the printer software from Control Panel > icon view > Programs and Features

Restart the computer and log in

 

What if?

If software will not uninstall, appears to be removed and is “still hanging around” after you uninstall / Restart...

Microsoft:  Fix problems that block programs from being installed or removed

OR

Revo Uninstaller (Free version)

then

Restart the computer and log in

 

 

Reminder:  If using USB, disconnect the USB printer cable between the printer and the computer before installing software.  (Re)Connect the USB cable when instructed to do so near the end of the installation procedure.

Install a fresh copy of the Full Feature Software / Full Driver printer software

Restart the computer and log in

 

Method - Use the Easy Start Wrapper to Install the Full Feature / Full Driver Software

 

For printers that support the option,

Use the Easy Start wrapper to install and configure the printer software.

 

  • Home Page - HP Easy Start 
  • Open Category Software and Drivers 
  • Topic: Software-Utility 
  • Download-and-Save  the current version of the Easy Start wrapper to install your print software 
  • If using USB:  Disconnect the USB cable between the printer and computer before installing the software.
  • Right-Click on the downloaded package and "Run as Administrator" to start the installation
  • When asked, Select to install the “Full Driver” / “Full Feature Software”
  • If using USB:  Connect the cable when instructed to do so (near the end of the installation process).
  • After the software is installed, Restart the computer and log in.

 

Notes >> Easy Start... The Journey

 

  1. Full Administrator Rights are required to complete the HP Software installation.
  2. About 2/3 of the way through the setup, you will be given the opportunity to select the software - select the "Full Driver" set (as opposed to the basic driver or other application).
  3. You can skip / ignore suggestion(s) that you add the HP Account – you’ll need the account at some point, for now, you can skip this suggestion (as many times as it insists it’s a good idea) during the full driver software installation.
  4. If you see it, you can skip / ignore suggestion(s) regarding Instant Ink subscription.  Instant Ink subscription is NOT mandatory.
  5. If the installation completes and then wants to loop around again, X out of the repeat menu / message to install again.
  6. Full driver includes print and scan functions supported by your printer and provides the printer features on which other applications / software might depend.
