Notepad and Receipt Printers

Recently, I learned that some libraries send small print jobs from Notepad to their receipt printers.  It’s a great idea, but the process can waste some receipt paper if Notepad isn’t set up properly.   Even if there are only a few lines of text, the printout will advance to 11” long.  Follow these steps to fix this.

  1. Open Notepad
  2. Click File
  3. Click Page Setup
  4. Clear Header field (removes "Untitled" header)
  5. Clear Footer field (eliminates the blank space at the end)
  6. Click OK

Thanks to the Oregon Public Library for bringing this to my attention.
