My name is Wayne Robinson and I'm a web applications developer from Queensland, Australia. In August 2005 I discovered Ruby on Rails and instantly fell in love. From that point forward, Ruby on Rails has been my language of choice for new projects however, I still use PHP to maintain some legacy applications.

Stop printing document properties summary page in Word 2007

I don't know how it happend, but a colleagues version of Word 2007 recently started printing a document properties summary page at the end of each print job. It took me about 20 minutes searching the Internet for a solution to this problem (even Office's help doesn't seem to have any information on this *feature*), so I've decided to put my solution here.

  1. Click the 'Office Button' (top-left corner of the window) then 'Print'
  2. Click 'Options' (bottom-left corner of the print window)
  3. Choose the 'Display' section
  4. Untick 'Print document properties'
  5. Click OK to all the windows and you're done

I cannot thank you enough. I have struggled with this problem for around a year. Too much hassle and wasted ink and paper. I finally was fed up and googled the question after many times trying to find the solution myself or calling office support. I fixed the problem in about 60 seconds. I wish I had found you earlier. (This post took longer than the solution). Blessings to you.

Thanks for this post. It helped me out with a problem with Word 2003. For Word 2003 if you click print - box pops up to choose what printer to print to - in bottom left hand corner choose options - Then i unchecked the check box marked Document properties. THANKS!!!
