Hi, I also have trouble with tiny printing. I do have IE 7 and my printer prints from the internet too small for old eyes to read. I did as the tech suggested, thank you, and changed the number on the shrink to fix or whatever, on the printer preview, and it did help,but now the page gets cut off. Isn't there anything to do that will fix this properly? Thank you. Kathy

Hi Kathy--Welcome to TSG.

Web pages are funny to print from--no two work the same way...Many pages (recipes, for instance) offer 'printable view' which reformats the web page to plain text which can also be saved.

If you're printing text from web pages, try this:

Open notepad, click 'format' and make sure 'word wrap' is checked. Use your mouse to highlight the text in the web page that you want to print (hold the left mouse button while 'dragging' - the highlighted area will change color). Right-click in the highlighted area, left-click 'copy', right click in the blank notepad document and left click 'paste'. You should then see a plain text version which can be printed in a readable version. You can click 'format' in notepad again to change the 'font' to something larger and easier to read.
