Need to Increase Print Size on the Internet

When I wish to print out from the Internet, I go into View, Text Size, and click on Large, but the printer only prints in small text. Any suggestions on how to print out in a larger text size so I can read it.

Try holding down Ctrl button and then moving your mouse wheel to increase the size - it will sometimes then print larger text, but not always. Worth a try though.

If you are using IE8 then the way to do this as File - Print Preview (as Woodchip suggested) and then you will see a box marked "shrink to fit" with a drop down arrow to the right. Click on this and you can select the print size - 200% if you want or custom. This works as I've just done it as an experiment.

Works the same in Firefox

In Opera it is under print options.
