Always Preview Before Printing.
SUMMARY: Get better webpage printouts from Internet Explorer by using the
Print Preview feature.
Before printing a webpage with Internet Explorer, always use the Print Preview
mode to see how the webpage will look on a piece of paper. Just click "File" and
then "Print Preview" to select this mode.
Why is Print Preview so important? Unfortunately, depending on a webpage's
layout, graphic elements or blocks of text might get chopped off. Text does not
always wrap correctly, so you may print out a page of important text only to

If you notice missing text or graphics in your on-screen virtual printout, you
can always change your paper orientation from Portrait to Landscape. Click
"Close" to exit Print Preview mode. Click "File" then "Page Setup". On the "Page
Setup" dialog box that follows, choose the "Landscape" radio button under
"Orientation". Then press "OK" to close that dialog box. Afterwards, preview
your document again to see if it looks ok and that no text or graphics are cut.
If everything looks fine, click the "Print" button from the Print Preview mode
to get a hardcopy of your desired page.
