*** Tip of the Week
Internet Explorer – Use Print Preview to Avoid Printing Unnecessary Pages
Printing from a web page can be frustrating because you never know what's actually going to print. You might find the document is 18 pages, and you don't want the whole document -- you only wanted the information on page 3. To stop wasting paper and get more usable prints, use Print Preview when you aren't sure how the print output is going to look. It's easier than it looks.
The basic way to preview a print job is:
- Pull up the webpage you want to print.
- Select File from the main Internet Explorer menu bar.
- Choose Print Preview from the drop-down menu.
- The default view will be of the first page only.
- At the bottom of the page is a box that says Page __ of ___. This tells you how many total pages would print if you simply printed the document. Decide which page(s) you want to print by scrolling through the document page by page.
- Once you find the page(s) you want to print, click on the printer icon at the top of left-hand corner of the page.
- Under "Page Range" you will see the "All" box selected. Click on the button to the left of "Pages." This will allow you to only print selected pages.
- Now type the page number(s) in the box to the right of Pages, i.e., 1 or 1-3. Click Print.
