Using hp p2055dn printer, how do I print to 11X17 paper size.

Win 7 Pro Devices and Printers...Printing Preferences...Paper Options includes 11 X 17 inches.

How do I make this work? None of the trays seem to support this size paper.

Doesn't appear that this printer supports that size.  Looking at it I don't think the 11x17 paper would fit in the output tray.  Are you using the universal HP printer driver?  If so, try the driver specific for that model.

Here is the driver page for that model, just choose whether you have Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit.

That model only supports paper sizes from 3.0 x 5.0 inches up to a maximum of  8.5 x 14 inches.

As bigeven2002 says it's likely you are using a universal driver which is offering you unsupported sizes

As I feared, I will have to look elsewhere for a printing service.
