Print preview is a feature that allows a user to view what a printed version of the document would look like on the screen before printing a hard copy. To open the print preview feature, click the print preview icon on the toolbar, like that shown in the picture to the right or click File and choose the Print Preview option.
- Microsoft Word - Press Ctrl + F2 to open the print preview for the document you're currently viewing.
- All other programs - Many programs do not have a shortcut key for the print preview feature. However, you can press Alt + F to open the file menu and press V, R, or the other underlined character (Mnemonic) for the Print Preview.
