    I want to print off a few spreadsheets that I have taken screenshots of, but would like to have the printed result in a larger size of font. That is, I have pasted the pages to Paint but don't know how to make the printed version a bit larger, as at present they are rather hard to read.

    In Paint, select "Resize", then "Percentage", then in the "Horizontal" box, type in something like "120" to increase the size by 20%. (Oh, make sure the "Maintain aspect ratio" is checked before typing in the new size so that it doesn't get stretched out of shape.

    Well, I don't know what I'm doing wrong, because I can get to the screen which shows "Resize", and I change the 100 to 130, the click Ctrl+P, but the details (words & numbers) on printed page are always tiny!

    Try this: Click the little Menu button (just above Paste), select Print > Page Setup, click the radio button next to "Adjust to:" and click OK. Now do a Menu > Print > Print Preview to see if it's going to look alright. If not, go back to the right of that "Adjust to:" and change it from 100% to whatever size you want.

    Changed it to 110% and got exactly the printed info I wanted! Just one (very minor) hiccup was that I couldn't understand why my printer churned out eight blank pages before it printed what I wanted! But no worries, paper went back into printer for another time. Many thanks for
    your kind assistance! And best regards.
