I'm new here!

First I would like to say I'm a TBI survivor and I'm a male and 42 years old :thumbsup: .
I was purchased an emachine computer with a Lexmark lasar printer,
Whenever I go to print something, be it a web site article or a personal document that was created using Microsoft Works Word Processor. Whatever is being printed my name appears at the VERY top and the city and state printed at the bottom.
I know little about computers so I'm trying to get an answer why this is being printed.
The only thing that I can come up with is MY NAME, CITY and STATE was somehow entered on this computer's Hard drive and is prints it because it's been entered by someone at the store before iyt was brought home and set up for me.

If there is someway that I can delete this info. being printed, PLESE tell me what to do EXACTLY!

Thank You!

That's very strange, it sounds like a 'Header and Footer' has been set up with that info and is in your normal.dot template. (If Works uses such a template, I know Word does).
Try doing a Find (or Search depending on your version of Windows) for normal.dot and rename any found to normal.old. Then test the printing again. If there is a problem you change the names back again.

I haven't used works in a long time but I remember in the setup for it there was a place to enter your name and address, etc.

Try clicking tools and see if that brings you to an options screen.

tbichaz: Welcome to BC!

Headers & footers would seem to be the culprit. Bring up either an existing Works document or start a new document in Works then go to View>Headers & Footers to see what is there...guessing it will show the name/address info being printed. You can amend it (or eliminate it) there. Please post back with your results.
