For quite some time it was strange to see some unnecessary margin borders in the PDF printing like below.

A4 Page layout in Microsoft Word prints with some extra margins in the PDF

The reason for this inappropriate printing is there is another layer of printer properties that control how the printer actually prints. In the printer settings, there is another page property which overrides the A4 page property that’s set in MS-Word

To fix the printer property (Microsoft Print to PDF printer in this case), go through the following in image below.

Windows Settings Printers & Scanners Select Printer (Microsoft Print to PDF in this case) Printing Preferences Advanced PaperSize Set your required paper size that matches Page settings in MS-Word
