    How change Print Orientation default to Portrait and how invert colors


    Two questions of Snip & Sketch: Win10 Home build 19042

    1. How change the default printer Orientation from Landscape to Portrait

    2. Some times if I am printing something with a lot of black, I like to invert the colors. How do I do that?

    :)

  2. Microsoft Print To PDF Option Changes Page Orientation To Portrait

    Hi, I'm attempting to print a report in a Windows 10 environment using the Microsoft Print To PDF option in the Print Dialog. There seems to be something rotating the page prior to viewing. I confirmed this by actually printing out the pdf file that was
    generated. It displays the data in portrait mode, but the actual print out is in landscape.

    I went back to the "Print\General" dialog and selected Microsoft Print To PDF. I confirmed the "OK" button became enabled at this point. I then selected "Preferences" and changed the "Orientation" combo box from Portrait to Landscape. The preview changed
    at this point to reflect landscape. I then selected "Advanced" and viewed the Paper/Output and Copy County options. Paper Size was set to "Letter" and Count was set to 1 Copy. I selected OK and confirmed the orientation in the preview hadn't changed. It
    was still showing Landscape. I then selected OK. Microsoft Print To PDF was still selected. There were no other relevant configuration choices, just Report Range, Paper Range and Project Options. I review these anyway, but could not find anything related
    to paper orientation.

    At this point I selected OK and was prompted for a location and name for the output. I provided this (noting the name and location). When printing completed, I opened the correct file in the correct location using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The two pages
    of my report were both in Portrait.

    At this point, I went to File\Print. I noticed the Orientation in the Print Dialog was set to Auto Portrait/landscape. I changed nothing in this screen, and selected Print. I did notice that the preview screen showed the page in landscape mode already
    though.

    When the report printed out, it was in the correct orientation, landscape.

    I went a step further and took a Word document created in Office 365 online. and changed it's orientation to landscape and printed it out using the Microsoft Print To PDF. This seemed to display correctly in landscape mode.

    Auto Orientation Print in Excel (Portrait AND Landscape)

    Last week my printer settings were auto orientation print, allowing me to print 100s of tabs in both orientations (portrait & landscape) and they would automatically go to the right orientation.

    I had to reset my computer Friday afternoon, and since then i can only print in one orientation, meaning i have to individually print each tab. Turning a 1 min job into 30+ min job.

    How can i change this back ?
