Windows 7 system cutting left margin on print jobs

I have a user with a Windows 7 64-bit system.  Any job she prints, whether to the HP1606dn attached via usb to her system or any network printer, cuts off the left margin by about a quarter inch or so.  I thought might be the 1606 driver, but then tested and found when printing to other printers not physically attached.

I went into the Print Server Properties, but all margins were set to 0.00, don't know where to go now.

Go to File|Page Setup and change the margins there to as low as possible.  Then go to  File|Print Preview and in the Menu bar click the down arrow on the right and choose "Shrink to Fit" or any percentage less than 100%.

I tried shrink to fit in printer properties..no change.  Also tried to shrink overall output to 90%..it just made what printed out smaller overall, but didn't correct issue.

Printers do not print to the edge of paper, they always leave a margin of 5mm. Check the document margins and ensure they set to at least 8mm.

Odd turn out...resetting default settings in IE11 eliminated issue.  I don't have an explanation...just is.

What was the IE setting?

Yes, indeed odd.

I don't know what was changed, or what program caused the change, but it was recommended to me to reset IE to default...I did...no more issue.  I know that isn't really helpful, and likely not useful for anyone, but it worked this time.
