If the pages of a return are printing oriented in Landscape mode rather than Portrait mode, you will need to change the orientation in printer preferences in Windows. The following steps explain how to change this setting for most printers.
- In Windows, access the Control Panel
- Select Devices and Printers or Printers and Faxes or Printers & Scanners (depending on the Windows version)
- Select the printer (the same one specified in the program for printing returns), then select Manage
- Select Printing Preferences – Locate the Orientation option. You may have to look through the different tabs to find the Landscape / Portrait orientation setting. If you are having trouble finding itm, refer to the printer's instruction manual to help locate this setting.
- Select Portrait
- Select OK
Note: Some state forms print in Landscape orientation by design.
