Can't print larger web pages


[link to this post]
 
I can alter the view on the screen to make web pages bigger and easier to read (IE9) but when I try to print a page it reverts to the original print size. Is there a quick way of printing the bigger version? I want to send something to an elderly relative who can't see very well.

Rather than do "Print" on them, can you do a "Print Preview"? Then at the top is a size selection box.

One of the problems with that is that if the page is zoomed and becomes wider than 1 sheet of paper (whether portrait or landscape) all off to the right is lost.

The only other way I can think of is to screen scrape the relevant info into a document and then size it and print.

Goto print preview and in the properties, try changing the margins to zero. It might help.
