IE5 not prinint full page

By lyallaust ·
When printing pages in IE5 it only prints what can be seen, not the full page. That is, any part of the page that is off the right margin is discarded.
When checking the Microsoft site i found that large frames are discarded like this "by design".
NB I cant adjust the screen size due to the OS being NT (4.x) Terminal.

Go to page setup and reset the margins,the view will let you see the margin setup.adjust and test the printed page until you get the margins set to your spec.,I use .25 left margin and .50 right margin

When you click on print you should be able to see the print window pop-up.
In the print window pop-up you should be able to see a button called "properties". In there you might have an option to shrink the print-out to a certain percentage of youroriginal.

Now this is of course all driver dependent. Most HP print driver have this function. I do not know what kind of printer you are using but HP printer is very common in a corporate environment. If your printer driver does not support that function, then I suggest that you get an update on your driver if there is any.

You can also set the margins of your printout to a smaller margins or printing it in the landscape mode.

Change margins from Page Setup. From IE top menu, click File/Page Setup. Set the Left and Right margins to 0. It will automatically adjust to conform to the maximum printing area of horizontal page of your printer. Do not change the top and bottom margins. They are set to .75 inch. This is helpful because the web page prints the header and footer plus the date of the site including page no. (page x of x). If you set the Top and Bottom margins to 0, you won't see the header and footer but the printer will use the maximum printer area of vertical page of your printer. It's your choice.

Enjoy!

What if the page is bigger than a page even without margins (i'm talking horizontal width being excessive)?
