How to Set the Margins on a HP Deskjet F300 Series
Change the margins on your pages to include more or less information (laptop image by Du...¡an Zidar from Fotolia.com)

Hewlett-Packard, or HP, is an American electronics manufacturer that produces the Deskjet F300 series printer. The F300 printer takes its margin settings from within each document it prints, rather than allowing you to predefine any margin sizes; consequently, you must adjust the margins on your HP F300 within your computer's software and not on the printer itself. Minimise margins within Windows if the document's borders do not print correctly, otherwise use Microsoft Word to easily set document margins.
