every time I try to print text off the web, it prints REALLY small.

what setting did I inadvertantly change to cause this? (printed normally for years)

I can't figure it out, either!

What web browser and OS are you using?

Have you tried printing stuff from a different web browser?

try different browser or check your print settings...sometimes it tries to fit to page and that makes it smaller etc.

appreciate the replies.

I'm using IE on XP. I don't have another browser installed.

It's when I highlight a section of text and try to print that selection.

I couldn't find anything on the printer preferences to cause it. Like I said, it printed normally for a long time. then, all of a sudden....small printing

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/community/columns/shrunk.mspx see if the "shrink to fit" section helps

appreciate all the replies!

RonPaul and lovette, that's indeed where the problem is.

seems like there's about 4 extra steps needed to correct the issue (EVERY TIME I print a selection from the web), but...

at least now I can read what I print! [yeah, I'm getting old].

Thanks to all,

go to print review to change the "settings", use the drop down for selected text and then choose 100 percent for the text size (versus shrink to fit)

Good to know, thanks for the update.
