There are two ways to tackle this and I assume you are using W7; if using XP the second method is slightly different:

  1. In the software you are using to print from select "Print" and click the "Properties" button. Select the "Layout" tab and identify the "Orientation" option - it is a dropdown menu - change it to "Portrait" and click "Apply" and "OK".

  2. Open "Control Panel" and select "Devices and Printers" identify your printer (there may be more than one shown) with a green tick on it. Double click the icon and in the new box select "Adjust Print Options". Select the "Layout" tab and identify the "Orientation" option - it is a dropdown menu - change it to "Portrait" and click "Apply" and "OK".
