The following are answers to commonly asked questions about printing in Internet Explorer.
When you print a webpage, Internet Explorer shrinks the content of the webpage to fit the width of your paper. If the webpage is wide, reducing the text size to fit the page can cause the text to be unreadably small. To fix this, try one of the following:
Change print orientation to landscape.
Select portions of the webpage and print them separately. See the question "How do I print specific parts of a webpage?" later in this topic for more information.
It might be helpful to stop printing background colors and images. Here's how.
Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.
Clear the Print Background Colors and Images check box, and then click OK.
Some webpages specify exactly where text should print on the page. If the webpage you're printing specifies exactly where the text should print, Shrink To Fit will not work. You can work around this problem by setting a custom scale factor in print preview. For more information about print preview, see Preview the appearance of a printed webpage.
If you want to print only a specific part of a webpage (instead of printing the whole thing), follow these steps:
Go to the webpage, and then select the content you want to print.
In the Print dialog box, click Selection, and then click Print.
