Hi Experts,
  I liked to know how to change the unprintable area of a printer under Windows 2000.  In Windows 95 and windows 98 there is an option to set the Unprintable area of all printers.  But in the properties of the printers under Windows 2000 there is no such option.   My aim is to set the unprintable area of a printer to 0 inch.    This is needed to run one of my software.

You may be able to work aroung this by opening the printers folder, going to the file menu and selecting server properties, going to the "forms" tab and defining a custom form size.

Other than that, I don't think it is possible to do this in W2K

Good Luck

Not get any proper answer yet.  So I would like to close this question and have my points refunded.

Actually, you did get an answer........you can't set unprintable area in Windows 2000...you can, however define custom print areas.    The fact that you don't like the answer is not a factor in finalizing the question.
