    I have recently had to re-enter all my software onto a new hard drive, and I cannot trace two small utilities which I found very useful. Can anyone point me towards a site where I can download these.
    One was for an Ink Status Monitor. My Epson C86 printer does not want to tell me the Ink levels,now that it has a new Driver for Windows XP. Epson,of course,has not supplied an XP Driver,so that I have to use a Windows 2000 Driver, and XP does not like that.
    The other was a free utility to allow me to print the full width of a Web-site. At present,using XP and an Epson Photo 900 printer, the printed page cuts off the ends of each line. I did have a small utility which gave me the whole line to print.
    Can anyone help?

    I usually end up printing some web pages in landscape mode to keep them from cutting off. I'd like to find a non-Epson utility that does it properly. :)

    Thanks a lot. I have downloaded both of these, and will try them out. It seems to be obvious that the Epson Web-to-Page utility is one of those that I was looking for,and the C86 Driver is different to the one that I had downloaded from Epson. Hopefully,this new one will be more successful. Thanks again. My computer is always determined to make me feel ignorant,and is usually right!

    From what I read, FireFox has an option to Print To Fit and there will be on in IE 7 as well.

    In Firefox> File> Page Setup> Format & Options tab> under Format section, you can click the radio button:
    Shrink To Fit Page Width.

    Have you tried the Epson Utility? I have an Epson printer so I don't know if or how well it works for non-epson users. Canon also has a similar utility.

    Can't say I've ever even heard of those. I have a Canon printer on the network, so it might be happy. :)

    I had an epson stylus C60 and my dad had a color 777 (which is on my sisters computer) and the c60 is gone. I cant say i was too impressed. i seem to really like the hp printers. The 777 was on a network and had a built in ink gauge, well when it went network it would not show it, the printouts were never spectacular, and they are just well crappy, i like the hp though good printout, everything does what it says and i am very happy with the laserjet on our network in the basement. When the 777 finishes its last reserve of ink im tossing that and everyones just using the laserjet. Sorry for going off topic, just had to give my IMO in this.
