Microsoft Word 2003 Printing and Print Preview – Print Background Colors and Images

When printing a Word 2003 document containing background colors or images you have added, you may find the printed copy lacking these colors or graphics. While this saves print time and color toner, if you meant for the document on-screen to show color and images, the printed version should match the on-screen one, right?

1. Click “Tools” then “Options”.
2. When the “Options” multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the “Print” tab.
3. Check “Background colors and images”.
4. Click “OK” to close the dialog box.
