Print Your Document in Office on Your Surface

It’s no coincidence that the Surface with Windows RT includes a free, installed copy of Microsoft's Office Home and Student 2013 RT. Printing a document with any of those popular programs — Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote — are all many people need.

After you’ve finished and saved your document, follow these steps to print your finished work in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint:

  1. Tap the word File from the Ribbon menu.

    The Ribbon menu stretches across each program’s top. Tapping different words on the Ribbon – Format, for example – shows different commands related to that formatting your document.

    Tapping File reveals file-related commands, shown in this figure, including Print.

    Choose Print from the left edge, choose your printing options, and tap the Print button at the top.
    Choose Print from the left edge, choose your printing options, and tap the Print button at the top.
  2. Choose your printer and adjust its settings, if necessary, and tap Print.

    If you only want one copy of your document sent to the printer you normally use, just tap the Print button.

    If you need to do a little tweaking, adjust the settings shown in the figure before tapping the print button.

    • Desktop programs include built-in print commands that allow more customized print jobs. Start screen apps, by contrast, require you to open the Charms bar, choose Devices, and select your printer in order to print.

    • Need to give a PowerPoint presentation? You could also connect your Surface to a projector or external display.
