MS Paint - unwanted margins appear when printing

Hi, I have a document (see below) where the letterhead should go to the edge of the page at the bottom. When viewing the document it looks right. But, when I print, small white margin is placed around the whole page. I have tried to put the margins of the document to 0, but MS Paint auto-changes them to 0.12" and won't allow them to be any less. How can I remove these margins? Even when I convert the file to another document type, the margins are inserted as well.

Very likely, it is your printer.

Check the size of paper that it's set to

does your printer do edge to edge printing? if so you will have to choose that setting. If not then you will always get a margin of the unprintable area.

Solved!!! Thanks. The HP Envy 7640 has a Maximum print area of 209.9 x 349.6 mm (8.3 x 13.8 in). So, it will only do edge printing on paper that is those dimensions or smaller. I also learned that edge printing is called full bleed printing.

Correction! HP Envy can do borderless printing for letter size paper. Here are the instructions. click here As for its execution, for my purposes, the printer didn't perform well enough.
