The print is too small to read. Is there a way to requesr larger print? I just click on the print icon and it comes out too small to read.

Hi,

Please unistall the printer program restart the pc and again install the program,and let me know what happen

Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
Hi,

The print size of the text printed doesn't depend on the printer itself, but on the application the printer takes the text from; could you specify in which program do you click on the print icon, after which the text comes out in small print?

I'm afraid that was not the info I needed, what's the name of the application in which the Yahoo! toolbar, which you mentioned earlier is present? It should given at the top of the window ..is it Windows Internet Explorer, by any chance?

yes--it is windows internet explorer--sorry ms granny
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
In order to try and resolve the issue you are having with the print size, please carry out the following steps in Internet Explorer,
1) Go to View > Text Size, and select 'Medium' or higher, if not already selected.
2) Next, go to Tools > Internet Options, under the 'General' tab, click on the 'Accessibility' option present at the bottom, then check the 'Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages' option accordingly.
3) Now, go to File > Print Preview, then select the 'Shrink to Fit' option at the top of the window that comes up.
Done that, try printing the webpages you want to, now, and check how it goes for you.

Keep me posted.
