  1. Because there is no GPO/GPP to set the printing margins to the minimum size in Internet Explorer, I was searching a way to achieve it with a script. Well, not easy... An easy way to set the margins to there minimum size is to set margin values to 0 from the Page setup window in Internet Explorer. When you re-open the Page setup window, the margins are set to there minimum sizes. It's because the minimum margins are based on the default printer's capabilities. When we set the margins values in the Page setup window, Internet Explorer checks if each value can me supported by the default printer, else it uses the minimum size from the printer capabilities. We could think that we have just to set the registry margins values to 0 but no, the Page setup window keeps 0 for each margin, so it doesn't work. Here is the code I made to define the margins, without using the Page setup from Internet Explorer : #Include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WinAPISys.au3> Global Const $PHYSICALOFFSETX = 112 Global Const $PHYSICALOFFSETY = 113 Global Const $LOGPIXELSX = 88 Global Const $LOGPIXELSY = 90 Global Const $PHYSICALWIDTH = 110 Global Const $PHYSICALHEIGHT = 111 Global Const $HORZRES = 8 Global Const $VERTRES = 10 Global $aRes = DllCall("GDI32.dll", "hwnd", "CreateDC", "str", "winspool", "str", _WinAPI_GetDefaultPrinter(), "long", 0, "long", 0) If @error Then Exit Global $hPrintDc = $aRes[0] Global $iLOGPIXELSX = _WinAPI_GetDeviceCaps($hPrintDc, $LOGPIXELSX) Global $iLOGPIXELSY = _WinAPI_GetDeviceCaps($hPrintDc, $LOGPIXELSY) Global $iPHYSICALWIDTH = _WinAPI_GetDeviceCaps($hPrintDc, $PHYSICALWIDTH) Global $iPHYSICALHEIGHT = _WinAPI_GetDeviceCaps($hPrintDc, $PHYSICALHEIGHT) Global $iHORZRES = _WinAPI_GetDeviceCaps($hPrintDc, $HORZRES) Global $iVERTRES = _WinAPI_GetDeviceCaps($hPrintDc, $VERTRES) Global $iPHYSICALOFFSETX = _WinAPI_GetDeviceCaps($hPrintDc, $PHYSICALOFFSETX) Global $iPHYSICALOFFSETY = _WinAPI_GetDeviceCaps($hPrintDc, $PHYSICALOFFSETY) Global $iMarginsLeft = $iPHYSICALOFFSETX / $iLOGPIXELSX Global $iMarginsTop = $iPHYSICALOFFSETY / $iLOGPIXELSY Global $iMarginsBottom = (($iPHYSICALHEIGHT - $iVERTRES) / $iLOGPIXELSY) - ($iPHYSICALOFFSETY / $iLOGPIXELSY) Global $iMarginsRight = (($iPHYSICALWIDTH - $iHORZRES) / $iLOGPIXELSX) - ($iPHYSICALOFFSETX / $iLOGPIXELSX) RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup", "margin_bottom", "REG_SZ", $iMarginsBottom) RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup", "margin_left", "REG_SZ", $iMarginsLeft) RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup", "margin_right", "REG_SZ", $iMarginsRight) RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup", "margin_top", "REG_SZ", $iMarginsTop) The code was adapted from here : http://www.swissdelphicenter.ch/en/printcode.php?id=1039 I hope it will be useful for someone
