    Your printer probably is limited to .5 margins, try using a
    different printer setup, perhaps a default printer.

    Have a look at your printer specifications, it sounds like it can only print
    to .50 margins. The driver will have that coded into itself so you can't
    print in unprintable areas

    I cannot get my word pad to unlock. I used the help section and followed the
    directions and still nothing. The "key" won't highlight so I can unlock word
    pad. How do I do this?

    Are you sure you're talking about WordPad? I don't see anything about
    locking it or unlocking it, or anything referring to a key of any sort.

    Maybe if you describe what you're trying to do, or what this unlocking thing
    is supposed to accomplish, someone can help you.

    I wrote a document in word pad and saved it to my documents. The next day I
    wanted to modify it. When I made an attempt to add something to it, the
    blinking vertical line would not move and I could not typye anything. I went
    to the help section and typed in "locked document". The advice came back
    telling me to go to view, options, and then click on unlock documents. At
    that point an icon on the tool bar looking like a padlock is, I presume, to
    highlight, where I click on that and is supposed to unlock the document so
    that I can continue with what I was doing. Now the problem is that I can't
    even open word pad at all. Now I get a message that says
    Worp Pad MFC application cannot respond, without explanation. Since I do not
    have Microsoft Word I use word pad and now I can't even use this. Please help.
    Thanks.

    When I type that phrase into either the "Index" or "Search" tabs of
    WordPad's help system I get absolutely nothing. Nor do I see anything
    resembling "Unlock Documents" under View|Options. Are you sure you're
    using Word Pad?

    If it is WordPad, you may be able to restore its mind by inserting
    your WinXP CD and doing a repair install. You might also consider
    downloading Open Office (www.openoffice.org), a free office suite that
    includes a word processor that handles Word format documents (*.doc)
    just fine.
