I have a InfoPath form that user fill out with the web browser. After the user fill out the form they need to print the form. When they print the form, Internet Explorer places a header and footer on the printed form. how do I remove this before the user prints the from. I know how to remove it manually when i print it but i don't wont the user to go thought this every time they print  a form.

Not done much with web form printing but do you have a seperate print view?

Have you gone into the print / view properties. I know they have the ability to manipulate the headers and footers.

Hi there Huck

When you have your form open in the browser, do you see an icon saying "Print View" at the top, in the left hand corner?  If so, the user should click that, which will open a version of the form in a separate browser window.  The print version does not have the "Powered by InfoPath Forms Services" logo in the header.

Is that what you're trying to achieve?  Or do you mean the inclusion of the filename, date, path and number of pages?  If you want to remove those, that is a feature of Internet Explorer rather than InfoPath...

If it is the IE settings that you want to change, can you let us know which version of IE your users are using, and whether you have only a few users and can visit each PC to change their settings or whether you need a way to push this out to all your users across the network.

Here is a page describing how to permanently change the print settings in IE7: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/print-pages-in-internet-explorer-7-without-headers-or-footers/

clay I will look into the options under a print view and see if I can turn off IE footer and Header.
HairBrush the Print View off the tool bar this work well but i wish it would remove the IE Footer & Headers. Thanks for the Link, I started look into change the IE setting with a Group Policy for all of my local user but I was hopping there was a way to change it for the external user that also use these forms. It my come down to educating the external user that would like it removed when they print.
Thanks you both for the help
