1. Introduction:

Welcome to the Sudoku Generator! This tool allows you to create Sudoku puzzles of different sizes and difficulties. Sudoku is a logic-based number puzzle where the goal is to fill a grid with numbers so that each row, column, and sub-grid contains all the numbers from 1 to the size of the grid (e.g., for a 9x9 grid, the numbers 1 to 9 should appear in each row, column, and 3x3 sub-grid).

2. Getting Started:

To start generating Sudoku puzzles, follow these steps:
 Select Size: Choose the size of the Sudoku puzzle you want to generate (4x4, 9x9, 16x16, or 25x25) from the "Size" dropdown menu.
 Choose Difficulty: Select the difficulty level (easy, medium, or hard) from the "Difficulty" dropdown menu.
 Generate Puzzle: Click the "Generate Sudoku" button to create a new Sudoku puzzle based on your selections.

3. Generating Sudoku:

After clicking the "Generate Sudoku" button, the tool will create a new puzzle based on your chosen size and difficulty. The puzzle will be displayed on the screen with some cells filled with numbers. These filled cells are the initial puzzle, and some cells will be left empty for you to fill in.

4. Viewing Solution:

If you want to see the solution to the generated puzzle, click the "View Solution" button. This will display the complete solution, showing the correct numbers for each cell.

5. Printing Sudoku:

To print the Sudoku puzzle, click the "Print Sudoku" button. The puzzle will be printed at the top center of the page. You can adjust print settings such as paper size and orientation in your printer settings. If you want to print the puzzle first then print it before viewing solution because after view solution is clicked the puzzle will be printed with solution.

6. Troubleshooting:

If you encounter any issues while using the Sudoku Generator, consider the following troubleshooting steps:

Check Settings: Ensure you have selected a valid size and difficulty before generating a puzzle.
 Internet Connection: If the puzzle is not generating or displaying correctly, check your internet connection.

Printer Settings: If the printed puzzle is not aligned properly, check your printer settings and adjust as needed.

Memory issues: If you are generating huge sudokus 16x16 or 25x25 please wait for sometime with patience for the puzzle to be generated as the page generation may take some time. Good things take time. Thanks for your patience.
