Step

Click "File" on the menu bar and select "Print." A print dialog screen will pop up.

Step

Select a printer that you would like to send this print project to. Keep presets at "Standard" and the drop-down box below that at "Copies & Pages."

Step

Choose how many copies you would like to make and check or uncheck the box next to "Collated," depending upon how you would prefer to order the pages in the print job.

Step

Next to "Pages," check "All" if you would like to print everything in the window, "Current page" if you only want to print the visible page in the window, "Selection" if you have highlighted a piece of text and/or images and would only like to print that portion, or "From" and "To" to specify particular pages from your document.

Click "Print" to send the project to your printer.
