How to Print Text in Word 2010
There was a Print Preview option in earlier versions of Word that allowed you to see exactly how the document looked before printing it. You may have noticed that this feature seems to be gone in Word 2010. It hasn’t gone away; it is only combined with the Print window to create the Print pane, placed in the Backstage view.
Open the Print window (Print):
- Click the File tab to go to Backstage view.
- Select Print. The Print pane appears, with the print settings on the left and Preview on the right.
Click the buttons in the interactive below to learn about the Print pane.
- Go to the Print box.
- If you only want to print specific pages, you can import a range of pages. If not, select Print All Pages.
- A select number of copies.
- Check the Collate box if you are printing multiple copies of a multi-page document.
- Select a printer from the drop-down list.
- Click the Print button.
Sometimes you want to print something with one click using Quick Print. This feature prints documents using the default settings and default printer. To use this feature in Word 2010, you will need to add it to the Quick Access toolbar.
Quick Print always prints the entire document, so if you want to print only a portion of your document, you’ll have to use the Print box.
To access the Quick Print button:
- Click the drop-down arrow to the right of the Quick Access toolbar.
- Select Quick Print if it is not already checked.
- To print, click the Quick Print command.
