Putting a Print Icon on my Google Page

  haricot 19:03 07 May 2009

Would someone mind telling me please how to put a Print Icon on the top of my Google page so that I can click on it to print anything off.Sorry to be bit of a goofy on this.

google is only a webpage that opens within your chosen browser (IE6/7/8 or FIREFOX) like any other page, the option to print should already be in the task bar at the top of the page unless you are using firefox in which case you will need to add it by right clicking the task bar select customize then dragging print icon to the taskbar.

hope this is what you mean...

In IE8 there is a print icon top right 4th from left of items, next to "read mail" and before "page".Or "File, Print"

Hi chaps, thanks for coming back so quick. I appreciate that.

I've got a funny feeling however that its gonna get worse 'cos I havent got any of what you suggest at the top of my google page ! Perhaps
I hav'nt got the correct google page up !!!

I'm on IE 8 by the way , not Firefox.At least I think its 8 !

According to my set up I've either got "Classic" or "iGoogle". Neither of which show any of what you said I should have.

Any other ideas ? I told you I was a bit of a woos did'nt I.

In order to print anything in pretty much any application simply press CTRL+P

If you want it as I outlined, put cursor in the toolbar, right click then tick "Command bar" option.The print and switch to mail etc should appear.
I have the following ticked :Menu bar,Favourites bar,Compatability view button,Command bar,Status bar,Google task bar, AVG Security task bar and Lock the toolbars.)Maybe too much for some)

Apologies for a belated response (had a to go out last night) but sincere thanks to you all :-

Mat, alan14, John and Lazurus, I really do appreciate all this effort and I only wish that my computer literacy was up to yours.
I could send you a copy of my Google Page so that at least you could see what I have but sad that I am, I don't even know how to carry out this " click here " routine that you guys use. Not ever had to use it before.
If you could run thru that sequence for me I could shove it thru to you and you may be able to understand what I am rattlin' on about.

Ive copied my Google page layout and it is sitting in "My Documents" at the moment.

Thanks again chaps.

Wot no replies !

Have I upset you chaps or am I that thick that you may thinks I'm incapable.

Give it a go chaps and come back once more if you would PLEASE !
