(NT) Great site Kees,,Thanks
Printing more than what's on the screen.
In the past you have given me much appreciated help. Here's another one: I want to print a long article, more than what's on the screen, how??
Re: print a long article
Can you explain a little bit more?
You're talking about a browser (Internet Explorer?, Firefox?) and you want to print a webpage that doesn't fit on the screen, I think. Like www.msn.com or http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;270008 (just an example); those are longer than the screen, so you've got to page down to read all of it. Or only problems with pages that are too wide?
That's your question indeed?
Then tell how you do it now. So we can see if that's the best way.
Print an article longer than the screen.
There are many "how to" articles that are longer than the screen, which means my printer will print only what I see in front of me on the monitor, so I print that section, move the article up and print the next section etc., etc.,
I have XP and DSL, if that gives you any information.
Is there any other info I can supply?
Many thanks, Larry granpama
Re: printing articles
You must have a very strange computer, or a very strange browser.
If I do a File>Print in IE6 a dialog box pops up where I can choose between All, Pages from/to (and that's a paper page, not a screen page) or Selection (only activated if I have selected part of the page with my mouse). By default All is checked. And then IE prints the whole page, not only the part you see on the screen.
I can also print from File>Print Preview, with the same options.
If fact, I wouldn't know how to print only the current screen!
Tell more about your situation.
Printing articles longer than the monitor screen.
No, Kees, I have not got a very strange computer or a very strange browser. What I have is a very strange computer operator with a notable lack of basic intelligence.
I now see that I have a choice of printing "one page" or "all". This has been a mystery to me for a long time and you have answered my problem. Thank you again, this is perhaps the third or fourth time you've very kindly taken time to educate me for which I am extremely gratefull.
Again, thank you for your kindness, patience, and expert information.
(NT) Glad I could help. That's what this forum is for.
Printing pages longer than the screen.
One more question: On your computer, which button do you click that gives you patience for individuals like me ???
Another option.."PowerDesk Pro''...the 'Explorer' Windows
should have been. It will print a file list or a tree list and it also has a has 'Size Manager' which allow you to see folder sizes. A wealth of functionality.
Printing articles longer than the screen
I would appreciate more information: Where, What, How, etc., keep in mind you are dealing with a "newbie".(and long in the tooth!!)
Thank you, Larry granpama
Give me a WEBPAGE longer than a sceen you want to print
Normally...if there's no print button or print optimizer for an article you can hightlight the text you want to print, click on 'File', 'Print', click on 'Selection', 'Apply' then 'Print'.
Thanks . How about printing pages wider than the screen?
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try them and get back with you on the results.
One of the responses to my original question raised another question. I have had problems in the past in printing some webpages which seem to be wider than the printer will print so then I have to change to 'Landscape' printing mode. Is there a way to shrink the text to let it fit the page in 'Portrait' mode?
how do I print out the contents of my music files I am using windows xp an media player
And You Tried All The Suggestions In This Thread?
Easy way for Windows 7
Navigate to the file from which you wish to list.
Hold down the "SHIFT" key while right clicking on the file list.
Select "Open command window here"
Type "dir > print.txt" (without the quotation marks, space before and after the ">")
A file labled "print.txt" will be created in that director. The file opens by most defaults with Notepad.
Got this from "howtogeek.com" 'cause I'm not that smart.
