Hi

You are in the Computer section now.

There are various ways in which you can enlarge your print-outs. If words are too small to read on paper, you can make print size larger using "printer friendly" option. Use page print preview to make small text size larger.

Every website has a different name for the "printer friendly" button or link. Some articles don't have it, but most do. Look for a button or word something like this:

  • Printer Friendly
  • Print Article
  • Print
  • Print Page
  • Print This Page

The "printer friendly" button can be on the top, bottom, or side of a page. You can also use this keyboard shortcut:

  • Press Ctrl button + "F" key at same time
  • Type the word "print" into the search box.
  • Click "printer friendly" button.

On the "printer friendly" screen, select "print preview", using one of these two methods:

  • Next to print icon, click tiny arrow, and choose "print preview".
  • Right click on mouse and choose "print preview".

This is the "print preview" for the printer. Use this to see what a printed page will look like before wasting ink and paper. Print from this page after changing "shrink to fit" size to a larger size.

  • Click on arrow next to "shrink to fit"
  • Change "shrink to fit" to 125% or larger.

If there is no "printer friendly" button, a page will sometimes convert itself to print friendly text. To find out go to "print preview". Then change "shrink to fit" to a larger size. If the paragraphs fit, print from here.


If the sentences in the article don't fit, try changing the page sideways (to landscape). On the "print preview" page in the upper left hand corner, there are two small "pieces of paper". Click the one which goes sideways, also called "landscape".

  • Change to landscape
  • Change "shrink to fit" to 125% or larger
  • See if sentences fit

When nothing else works, the paragraphs in the article can be highlighted, copied, and pasted onto a new text document. Then it can be made into a larger text and printed.

  • Open new text document
  • Highlight text on webpage article
  • Press Ctrl + C (copy)
  • Press Ctrl + V (paste) on new text document

On the text document, make the print bigger:

  • Press Ctrl + A (all)
  • Change make text bigger
  • Print
Hope this helps. Kindly let me know if you require any further help.

Regards.
