Windows 7: Any fix to prevent wordpad from background image?

Any fix to prevent wordpad from background image?

I know about setting the application background color to white. Regardless of what color it is set at, it will still print the background color. Just setting it to white, will just hide that it is still printing the background. Microsoft shouldn't have put that feature on/in wordpad, it waste ink and ink is not that cheap. I just use wordpad to copy from a browser, that doesn't print correctly.


The printer is not printing correctly doesn't matter which browser I use. When I select what to print. The first part come out on the bottom of the 1st first package and the rest come out on the next page. Unless it has something to do with paste and copy.

For the background problem go to Internet Explorer's File, Page Setup and make sure Print Background Colors and Images is Unchecked, see if that helps. A lot of Microsoft's Windows-based applications seem to interweave with Internet Explorer.
