Windows 98 se; HP deskjet 840C; trying to print a page from my professional web site for my research ; but even when I ask it to "scale to fit" to even 97% the right hand side of print is chopped off. and relooking at my printed pages, I have rather a "generous" gap on the left hand side; any ideas how or what I might be able to try to get a complete page pinted with all the characters on it readable...please
the printer is programed to A4 size paper.
am trying not to lose my temper with it but, struggling:(
Can you post a link to the web page you are trying to print or is it a restricted site?
If it is purely text that you are trying to print, click on the page and press CTRL+A thyen CTRL+C. Open Word and Edit, PasteSpecial, select Unformatted Text and click OK. You should then be able to print from Word.
Its to do with the way pixels are measured to fit the screen and they don't match up with the way a printer sees it as dots per inch.
If your printer will not allow edge to edge printing or landscape is not acceptable then the only thing to do is highlight the text you want to print then select File/Print/selection from the menu, or copy paste into word then scale from there and print. j.
