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 have Word 2011 and have had the same problem. Researched internet for over an hour and stumbled on the print option under "Word->Preferences->Print. Deselect "Document Properties" under "Include with Document".
