printing extends beyond the RH margin

Posted on 2004-11-16

Quite often I receive tabulated results over the internet which I have to print. These results extend beyond the RH margin which means I have to use the bar at the bottom to drag them into view.  If I try to print the results they are truncated and some bits of info are lost.
I know I can switch to landscape mode but this is still not sufficient.  Also I have tried reducing the 'view' size to the smallest without success.
The question is there any simple way of printing out the full information on 1 sheet?
PS. I also have trouble with photographs received sometimes.

    Yes, you can copy and paste the contents of the page into a document, or use a program like printkey to select and copy the contents

    You could check the page settings, this is a common fault when the page you are viewing is A4 and you live in the USA, or Letter and you live in a metric country.
    Unfortunately though, Internet Explorer still fails to print some pages correctly after all these years.
    The simplest way to avoid this  is to use the Firefox browser, which, I was pleasantly surprised to find, usually formats these pages perfectly:)

    I'm sure nobus's solution also works but decided to choose wyliecoyoteuk's answer because using a new browser such as FiIREFOX is long overdue.  The problems I have had with IE recently have exhausted my patience.  The problem I submitted has been solved easily by using Firefox which I downloaded today and is free. I will continue to try it.
    Many thanks to both of you.
