    It doesn't print in portrait even when you specify it to?

    Did you remove the print drivers (printers folder -> file -> server properties -> driver tab) before you re-installed them?

    i went back through and deleted the driver before reinstalling it again, still no luck. It has always been specified to print in portrait, i don't know how it started printing in landscape

    it may not exactly be priniting in landscape, but its printing everything on the page but condensed into the top half of the page. I dont know if this changes the problem for those trying to help. Thanx in advance for any advice

    You can specify it to print in landscape in two places - one in the program you're printing from, and one in the printer preferences (where you set up the port, driver, name of the printer...)

    In both places it is specified to print in portrait form ( which is what i want), yet when i print, everything is condensed into the top half of the page. Definitely not the program, as i printed in notepad and it did the same thing.
