    How when printing a page of the internet/mail, and the page is wide can you get to print what’s on the RH side instead of the left?

    I had some mail from a company and I had to print it out the info needed is on the RH side but on the left side is just a site index which is not needed, but when printing I miss out on the vital info and yet not what is needed from the left. :(

    Thanks for the tip but is there anything else you can do, say it is a page long and you want to fit on one sheet of paper.

    Only other thing I can think of is to try changing the font to something smaller.

    Alternatively, depending on context and if you can fit it all on-screen, you could try doing a screen grab, using ALT-PrintScreen and printing that from within Paint .. klunky but effective at times. :)

    All depends on the web page. Sometimes there's nothing you can do - not sure if any alternative browsers handle this any better.

    Sometimes you can do print preview, then in the drop down choose Only the selected frame, this may get rid of some stuff on the left you don't need.

    File ~~> Print Preview... ~~> Drop down box with "as laid out on screen" change to "selected frame only"

    In IE 6 usually works a treat.

    Should print only the frame that you select stuff in (the right hand one by sounds of things)

    Well i thought i'd mention that it's in IE 6 seeing as there are plenty of browsers to choose from.

    Similar to above is to select and highlight the text/images you want with the mouse, and use File->Print and click "Selected".

    This does not always work, so use Ctrl-C, start Word and Ctrl-V, and Word will format the text for you. Some moving around/re-sizing of the pictures usually completes the job, Insert page numbers, delete unwanted text and off you go.
