Can't print a couple of pages from a Google Search

My partner is researching on Google for her College Course.

She has now found some relevant stuff but it won't print?

Instead of an "I" cursor she gets a "hand" as in PDF.

But this file does not look like a PDF to me.

It appears to be the whole book, although she only wants to print out pages 41 to 43.

File, Print and select Pages and enter 41-43 does nothing. I tried Copy and then Paste in to Word but that didn't work either.

The URL is very long so, but I will give it a try.

If it doesn't work, her search criteria on Google was:

"analysis the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world"

And the Google result she used was:

The Moral Parameters of Good Talk a Feminist Analysis - Google Books Result, pages 41 to 43.

it is a pdf type format.

a right click on the page gives a print option?

It's a way of stopping people doing what you're trying to do. Try taking a screengrab of it, that should work.

johnnyrocker, tried that. No print option.

MAJ, will give your suggestion a try.

i get one when i try it on there.

MAJ, no go. The screen grab worked but it only grabbed what it could see.

When pasted in to Word it is so small it cannot be read.

She has just told me that it isn't "life or death" as she can read it online. But it would be nice to be able to print and read at a later stage.

cant print either although option comes up

It will screengrab, pj, I've just done it. You'll have to take a few screengrabs and stick them together though. Go fullscreen and increase the magnification using the little magnifing glass. If it wont work for you, email me via the yellow envelope and I'll send it to you. It's only a picture.

johnnyrocker, just tried it again and still no "print" option.

I do get a "Print Picture" option but nothing happens on that except I get a blank page printed with "page 1 of 1 at the top" and that's all.

I don't suppose you could save those pages and email them to me?
