Q. My PowerPoint slides have a black background.  How can I use less ink so I can print on both sides?

 A. It appears that gray-scale and black & white print the same way - background is gray with black lettering. This prints OK double-sided, without too much bleedthrough. Also note: you may have a different outcome depending on the version of PowerPoint you use and whether you are printing as slides or handouts. Students report that handouts print with white background and black lettering when sent to the black & white printer.

Q. How do I print from JSTOR?

A. Click "View PDF" (make sure to read and accept the conditions set by JSTOR). Now, you can use the print button within the PDF.

Q. How do I print multiple slides per page within PowerPoint?

A. Click on Print. In the menu on the left side of the page, under Settings, you will see an option under slides that defaults to "Full Page Slides: Print 1 slide per page." Use the drop-down menu there to change the setting to the number of slides you'd like on each page.

Q. How do you print an entire workbook in Excel?

A. Go to print menu, settings, and select "print entire workbook."
