Yes, decrease your left/right margins in page setup, before doing a print.

They are most likely set at the default of 2.5, bring them down to 1.0 or 0.5 just for the print out. J.

Forgive the obvious,but have you checked your margins under File/Page Setup?


  Ramshackle 17:50 05 Mar 2003

Hi, tried that setup was set at 1.0 so set it to
.5 but still the same

Set your printer to print the problem pages in landscape rather than portrait

Ramshackle, if you can find a web page that's giving you a problem, post it here and I will try as well.

€dstow's advice is also good, and one I also use at times. J

Setting the right margin from 1 to .5 would make the problem worse, try Increasing the margin to 3 os more.

First off, your link leads back to this page, is that intended?

I'm using aol, and although you can choose option to print only what is selected on page, (Highlighted text), there is no option for page setup, and I get the right margin cut off same as you.

I then minimised aol and fired up IE6, this gives you option to page setup, I set margins to 0.5m and all text graphics on page printed exactly as seen on screen, even the little monitor under Top reviews. Regards. J.

There is invariably a load of garbage on web pages that are not needed in your hard copy. What I do in this instance is highlight the part I need, copy and paste into Word. By doing that, it will format to fit the page and you can juggle it about as you wish.
