Print/Print Preview

This is a great new feature! You will love it.

The Print preview Experience and the Print dialog box have been combined into the Print Place in the Backstage view. This feature is consistent across all Office applications.  The workflow process is still the same by using CTRL+P or by selecting Print in the Backstage.

In Microsoft Office 2010 the Print tab in the Backstage view has been totally redesigned. All of the printing functions are combined in one area. In Word 2010, the new view combines the Print dialog, the most common Page Setup elements, and Print Preview. Let’s take a look at some of the options Word 2010 provides:

To go to Word 2010’s Print view:

Click the File tab / Select Print


Press Ctrl-P

From here, you can do pretty much anything you want related to printing your Word document or managing the document properties.
When I start up Word 2010, my Print tab defaults are as follows:



All the changes can now be made in the Backstage area.
