Trouble Printing Pages on Computer

I hope someone can help me. Sometimes when I print something out, the print is so small. It doesn't come out like it shows on the page. I don't know if I changed something or what but it never use to do that. How can I make it print like it shows on the website?

If you are printing from a website, look at your PRINT PROPERTIES to make sure that the "fit to page" box is not checked. This will come up in a box when you click the print command. If it is checked, then uncheck it. Another solution would be to click File, then Save as, and then save the file to your hard drive. Then click File, then print, and it will print it exactly the way it looks on your hard drive.

Another thing you can do, is click the "preferences" button when your print screen pops up. Then click "effects" from the top row of choices. It should give you an option of increasing the size of the print from 100% to 110, 120, or whatever amount you put into the box.

Also, click the "VIEW" category at top of menu screen and click "TEXT SIZE" and then click the desired size you want.

Hi, while on web page go to the top where it says VIEW

About the 8th item down it should say text size. This is how big you want it to view when you are looking. You have 5 choices of size. Usually it is set on medium.

Making this larger will make your print larger

Some web pages have where you can increase the size (recipe pages,craft pages, etc)

OR click GO TO EDIT at the top, Click SAVE ALL

Take this to an CREATE MAIL MESSAGE on your outlook express. Drop it there, Send it to yourself--This is the fastest way I send things from webpages to myself, rather than save the webpage, etc.
