When you print the PowerPoint slide onto a standard A4 paper, it would be like this.

It looks weird, right? Do you know how to make the PowerPoint slide match the A4 paper when you print it? As a matter of that, we can set up PowerPoint page in advance before we create the presentation.

On PowerPoint 2010, open a file or create a new one. Click Design tab and choose Page Setup. A pop-up window of the same name appears. Now directly set the slide size as A4 Paper from the drop-down list. By doing this, we can Print PowerPoint on A4 papers perfectly.
