How To Change Printing Order

Dear Computer Lady,

Ever since I bought a new computer with Windows 7 and Office 2010 on it, my documents print backwards. Everything prints starting with first page, which means that I have to rearrange the documents when I pull them off the printer.

How can I change this? Becky


Dear Becky,

This is actually a setting in your printer properties.

I can’t tell you exactly how to change this setting since you have not told me what kind of printer you have, but I can point you in the right direction to find the setting and change it.

First, you need to access the properties for your printer. Here is how to do that in Windows 7


Click on the “Start Orb” and then click on “Devices and Printers” on the right side of the start menu.

In the Devices and Printers window that opens, right click on your printer, and click on “Printing Preferences”

The options you will see in the Printing Preferences window will vary depending on the type of printer you have, so at this point, I will tell you where the setting is for my HP Color LaserJet 2605. You might have to look around in your printing preferences dialog box to find the same settings.

For my HP printer, I click on the “Advanced” tab, and in the “Layout Options” section, I can change the page order from “Front to Back” to “Back to Front”.

Once I have made my selection, I click the “OK” button at the bottom of the dialog box to save my changes and close the window.

I hope this helps you find the settings for your printer.
