web page printing

Many years ago before web pages had adverts on them it was possible to increase the size of viewed print ( you still can ) AND you could also print out the page with the print enlarged. This is no longer possible , i think it could be due to web adverts locking the margins. The only work around i can use is to enlarge the viewed print then use the windows snipping tool to capture it so that i can print it like a photo.

The down side to this is that you can only do a part of a web page because if you do a full page , wimdows shrinks it down again to fit a4 paper.

Does anybody know of a way to view enlarged print AND print it off the same size

It is a weakness of Chrome.

What is a weakness with Chrome. Not sure what you are referring to. As far as printing is concerned Chrome calls the ability to print from the printer driver. It is the driver which determines what facilities it has. The same facilities are available through any browser.

Firefox and IE9 have in Print Preview the option to scale independently of the printer.

You all seem to have hijacked MJS-WARLORD's thread, he hasn't been able to get a word in.

Hi Woolwell

Apologies you are right. That would seem to be the best answer then for the OP ie use Firefox (never IE).
