If I print frm email it' GIANT can't change settings HELP

by 2BornotTB / November 19, 2012 5:43 PM PST

If I try to print anything from my yahoo or gmail account or even google maps the print is GIANT - doesn't fit onto page properly. I have checked the printer settings and nothing to be changed there.

If I print e.g. word docs already stored on my pc they print fine.

I use Windows 7 (64 bit)
firefox &/or Internet explorer (sometimes)

Posted issue on another forum but no help. What can I do - pls HELP?

you open the web page you want to print then click the file menu in the browser and select PRINT PREVIEW and use the scale control to resize things?

This happens in both browsers (Firefox and Internet Explorer)? And did you try Chrome already?
And what happens if you print a random webpage (like this one)?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I tried re-printing in each of the above - ymail, gmail, google map and found that it is now all working fine again now.

I think it must have been related to an issue I had with "MyStart/incredibar" that I just managed to solve yesterday. I got rid or that off my pc and now my print issue is resolved.

Thanks for your reply though!
