    Wordpad


    Have only two alternatives for page size,A4 or Letter,yet when I select letter the page size remains at A4 size.Never had any problems with Windows 7 but Windows 8 seems to be riddled with them.

    Update your printer drivers.

    As I am a rookie could you please explain to me why my printer drivers can effect the selection of page size on my computer as it prints o.k. when required.

    Because your page size selection depends and varies by the printer. Here's an example

    Click image for larger version

    You choose printer first, then click Preferences, and this is where you choose page size. This also means that:
    • your default printer is chosen when you open a dialog
    • if you have only one printer, it's your default printer

    Document will also save the settings of the printer driver and if you take it somewhere else it might not print same way.

I've never used powershell and don't want to mess anything up. I found this site which makes it look easy but confusing. I'm thinking just swap "WordPad" where it says "Notepad" Script to add an item to the context menu in Windows 8 (PowerShell) not sure if this belongs in customization or...
:cry: Good evening. I can't find Wordpad anywhere on this OS . Looked everywhere. Not in Apps. I'm actually upset. This is very hard to believe. Had a hard day and, now this ? Un-real. Just isn't happening. Totally imaginary. I guess that I should've seen this one coming. Goodday.
