A WindowsTips reader, Bill, has written to explain a specific issue he has had regarding printing and saving articles. The example Bill gave pertains to when he prints WindowsTips articles. He wanted more space to the side of the pieces so it could be three-hole-punched. A common practice in the States is to print items and store them within a three-ring binder for review later.
In the past, however, adjusting margins has been a tricky thing to do. Printing from web browsers has never been a consistently easy task. Every webpage seems to print slightly differently. One constant annoyance is margins used when printing web articles. It appeared that whatever default margin was created by the browser was what you had to use. Thankfully Microsoft has added a minor feature within Edge Chromium that can take care of that, and they did it in a way that has been done in other programs for years, just not web browsers.
If you find that you need to increase your print margins, you can now do so with Edge. Follow these steps:
For a standard three-hole-punched paper, your holes can be between .25" up to .5" from the left. In other countries where 3-ring binders are not commonly used, adjust the margins to the correct amount for your binding method.
