point size for print-outs of web pages

  pellim 20:20 04 Mar 2007

The point size on my print-outs get ever smaller . I'm now down to what must be ,6 point!
Help! I just can't find out how to alter the font size.
I run Windows XP and an Epson printer.

If you are using IE7 try going into File<Print Preview and chaning the drop down menu at the top from "Shrink to Fit" to 100%.

Yes - fantastic! What a relief! I was getting severe eye strain. I'm so grateful to you, (and all the marvellous experts who help out in this forum.)
Your answer has, I'm afraid, led on to a second question.
The phrase "shrink to fit" comes back each time after printing.
Is there a way of making 100% my default setting?

I'm getting a hiccup. The File > Print Preview window conflicts with the Epson Print Preview (that is, the final window to appear before printing).
Firstly, I successfully printed an article.This came out in about 9 point. OK but a little small.
So I tried again to print - several times. The printer remained still.Finally the Epson Print Preview appeared, but with the font size reduced -as before - to an absolutely minute size. In other words, it doesn't want to be told what to do by the File>Print Preview window.
I've had the printer for 5 years, the PC for 3 years, and all has gone smoothly, always. What gives?
