Printing Text Problem

by dbays / May 25, 2005 3:41 AM PDT

Hi Folks,
I amd using XP with a 3 Ghz processor, IGb RAM, and 160 Gb Hard Drive.
In attempting to print a Web Page, a report from Everest, or even a Word document, I am only getting
outside border printing and ads etc. In the Word doc,
just the header
My photos are printing normally,so I was wondering if I had inadvertently changed a setting, and WHERE.
I'm still a newbie, but can find my way around fairly well, if anyone has any ideas.
I uninstalled the Canon i860 Printer, and reinstalled it. No Joy.
Any ideas welcomed.

over the text you want to highlight it....? If so, once that's done, click File at the top toolbar, choose Print and in the print window, change the dot to be in 'selection' instead of 'all' Apply and begin the printing.

Let us know if that worked.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
