    Windows XP, Explorer 8. Long URLs are truncated when printing web pages. Page setup does not have an option addressing printing the ENTIRE URL. Have searched the web, where question has been asked by others, but answers have not provided a solution. Changing margins does not do it. Years ago had same problem, and I think there was something that permitted adding more lines to the footer. Would appreciate an answer.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Did you try in Landscape mode ? How long is the URL ? Anyway, here is my finding on this.

    I was checking on the options in Firefox to see if there is a solution. Excuse me if you are looking for IE-only solution. Hope others will find this useful.

    1) Page Setup option in Firefox http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-print-websites
    You can add a custom text or change what to be shown in Header/Footer and it can be aligned left/center/right.
    Change what to be shown and select "URL" in the Center option.
    And now the print page shows the long URL in full page width.

    I tested with the sign-in URL that you see when you visit gmail.com and it shows the full URL in the center of the page.

    Another option is to use the "Print Edit" add-on recommended in the above link. It lets you edit the webpage before printing. So you could try pasting the URL somewhere in the body.
