I have a webpage that I use in IE6 that when I print reports I always want them to be in landscape.
What I do cuurently is after I have opened up the webpage I go to "File" "Page Setup" in IE6 and choose "Landscape"

My question - how can I make this Page setup stick so that I don't have to change this each time?

Thanks!

This is a general setting in IE so in my opinion, the answer is no.
The only solution that I can think of is to use a different browser such as Firefox for that particular website and set the print properties in that browser to landscape.

bassdb18,

There is no way natively within Internet Explorer 6 to print landscape as the default. You have to change it each time. In IE7, printing is shrink to fit, so your whole page will be printed without going to landscape.

There is at least one thread at EE about this; one solution involves CSS, another ScriptX from MeadCo (an ActiveX component). A bit of searching might help you...

Add a duplicate installation of your default printer and configure it to print in lanscape mode in Control Panel .  Name it "My Landscape Printer" or something.  Select it whenever you want to print in landscape mode.
