Increasing display to 115% (Windows 7) also makes the document print larger

Guys,

64-bit Windows 7 PC was fine until we replaced the monitor. We adjusted the display to 115% as this is the size the user was the most comfortable with. However after that, when user prints out the Excel spreadsheets that normally fit on one page, now stretch to two pages.

Unfortunately I have access to this PC on limited basis, my next step would be to tweak the resolution (1024 x768 etc) and perhaps enlarge all of the components (Icons, Text, Windows etc).
Another thing that`s odd is if you move the icons to where you want them to stay on display, open and close the applications, icons go back to sorted for some reason.
Any way of fixing this issue ?

Thanks in advance.

You enlarged the document and not the view, try undoing your settings and holding ctrl and scroll forward.

I read your post wrong. I see what you meant. User is actually selecting a number of these excel spreadsheets and then prints them all at once. Sorry, I should`ve been more clear about this part. CTRL and Scroll would only work for the document that`s opened and user would have to open all of the documents individually save them and then print. Is there anotehr solution. I will try to play with teh resolution later on. Just funny how adjusting the display resolution on Win7 also adjusts the document prints....
