Word document print preview shows entire pasted image, but prints only part of image

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When doing a screen capture (copy and paste) into Word, everything is shown in the print preview.  However, part of the image, usually the bottom, and the right side is not printed.

Screen capture does not respect printing boundaries.


Using Copy / Paste does not respect Word boundaries (margins) nor does copy / paste always respect the document structure (layout).


Save the image / screen capture as an image.


Use Insert > Pictures and insert the image file into your Word document.


Right-Click on the image (after it is placed in the document)

Adjust the Size and Position to move the image inside the document boundaries.


What else?


Line spacing can get you into trouble, though when the other settings are correct, it is not always necessary to set / adjust the line spacing (before / after) the image placement to "single space" (as opposed to Normal).


What else?


Preferences - Correct odd / wrong-sized Image Sizes (for example, when printed from Word)


Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on your printer > Printing Preferences >

Tab Layout > Click Advanced > Switch OFF HP Real Life Technologies
