To ensure that the computer document size and the folder size are the same, open the folder, and measure it from its tab's tip till the folder's base. Take the measurement accurately in inches using a measuring tape. Accordingly, alter the document size in a suitable word processing program. To do this, select Page Size or a relevant option from the program's toolbar, and change the dimensions.

To ensure that the folder's title fits the tab correctly, keep the title name short. Also, measure from the open folder's left edge till the point where the tab starts, and use this measurement to position the cursor on the document.

Normally, folders are made of a material that resembles card stock paper. Hence, choose card stock as the paper type option. Before printing, attach a standard paper to the folder's side with the tab with tape.Then, alter the printout size in the Print box so that it matches the document size, and print the document.

Keep a few extra folders handy for taking trial printouts. Check the printout, and make necessary adjustments to the title to ensure that it fits the folder's tab perfectly.
