In general, is there a setting on a printer (specifically using a Dell M5200) that will allow printing outside the minimum margins that are set

I am printing onto a form that has characters close to the top and left edge of the paper (8-1/2 X 11) however they are being cut off even with the top and left margins set to 0

Thank you in advance.

Btw. you can set margins to 0 in for example MS WORD, but priner will ignore that setting if he can't print it.

Every printer has a maximum printable area. For some it is the size of the paper, for most it is smaller than that - for lasers there is typically a 5 mm margin all around. (inaccuracies in the paper transport mechanism may mean the print area is not centered on the page).The printer will not let you print outside the printable area. Check your printer documentation.
