How to scale down the page before printing using IE6?

Good day. If not wrong, the previous version of IE allows users to adjust the page scale so that the page can be printed in smaller/bigger size. For example, if by default 2 pages will be printed, scaling it down to "80%" may save the paper by printing all the content into 1 page.

Such an option is also available in Opera. In IE6, however, I can't find any option about it. Any solution?

Thanks and hope to hear from you.

Within IE 6 - File - Page Setup - therein you can configure the output to your choice; some of which in terms of flexibility is dependent on your default Printer and setup.  You can further configure within that by choosing your Printer Properties and Advanced.  Also, try the File - Print Preview from which you can also go to page setup.

There's more here, since I'm unclear what the pages are you're trying to print.  Some may have Frames, etc. and this will help you further:
