Print and preview documents

Can’t find the Print Preview button? Microsoft Office programs combine Print and Preview in the same window—click File>Print to find both. On the right, you’ll see your document.

To see each page, click the arrow at the bottom of the preview, and if the text is too small to read, use the zoom slider to adjust it.

Print and back buttons

Click Back button to return to your document.

To print only certain pages, print some of the document’s properties, or print tracked changes and comments—under Settings, next to Print All Pages (the default), click the arrow to see all your options.

If you’re printing a document that has tracked changes, choose how much markup you want to see in the printout. To turn off all markup, click Review. In the Tracking group, choose No Markup in the Display for Review box.
