Printing handout view in powerpoint

I am printing slides out in powerpoint and selecting handout prints. I then select 4 handouts per page and when it prints there is space around all 4 sides of each slide and a lot of wasted space. Is there any way to print handouts, 4 per page and have them take up the whole page ?

1) File > Page Setup > Increase width and height
2) Under print preview > options > Check scala fit to paper

I gave that a try and this didnt seem to achieve what I was looking for. Basically I want handouts with 4 slides to fill up the whole page.

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Both of those programs look like they will work, however I am looking for something that doesnt require the use of additional software.

Click File, Send To, Microsoft Word, choose your desired layout.  Make modifications in Word and then print.

I was hoping to find a way to just show 4 or 6 slides on the page as large as possible without taking up the whole page without any notes section.

You can either send to Word and modify the output within Word yourself or use an add-in like Hand Out Wizard.
An alternative: save the slides as images, Click File, Save As, choose JPG.
Then use the Photo Album feature to insert 4 images per slide to create your handouts as a new PowerPoint file: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/powerpoint/HA011593111033.aspx?pid=CH010017291033
You can easily resize the images as desired.

The best (and easiest) to achieve what you are trying to do, yes (IMHO).
