Previewing a document before printing
Before you print, it's a good idea to see how your document will look on the printed page. The Print Preview command on the File menu shows you a reduced view of your document. You can zoom in if you want to see parts of a page in full size view. If you decide you're ready to print your document, you can do so from the Print Preview window.
Tip: If you're printing a multiple-page diagram or mind map, it's helpful to see where the page breaks will be. See Showing or hiding the page lines.

2.On the File menu, choose Print Preview.
The Print Preview window appears, showing you a reduced view of the first page of your document.

Click the magnifying glass again to zoom out.
