If it's possible, it would be nice to have a way to print out the instructions given in a post more easily, perhaps another button somewhere in the frame (maybe down with the +mquote and "quote buttons at the bottom) which would only print out the contents of that reply. Or is there already a way to do this that I don't know about.

At the top of the topic is a options menu. The print option is there.

I meant a print for a particular reply only, not the whole topic. In particular this would apply mainly to the Malware removal forums. Some of the instructional posts sent are fairly long, and with all of the posting of results, printing the whole topic can run into several pages. Basically I want to print the last reply only as I have already printed the previous replies.

Is there a way to bring up just the one reply on the screen and then print the whole screen? When I click on the post # on the upper right corner of the post, and copy the link into the address window of the browser, I still get the whole topic, but the post # that I inserted just shows up at the top of the new browser window.

The best you can do is switch your display mode to outline and click on the particular post. This will show the first post and the post you clicked on. Least that cuts you down to two posts.

Copy and paste the relevant information needed to wordpad or similar and print from that application?

If you use Firefox, there is an extension called Aardvark. This extension allows you to remove stuff from a webpage you don't want to print/see or you can isolate an item you DO want to see. I save a lot of paper with this extension. You can read more about this extension here: http://karmatics.com/aardvark/

Thanks for the suggestions, but I did find a way to do it with my browser (IE8). If I just highlight the area I want to print and then right click on the highlighted area and choose print, then when the print dialog comes up, for page range I choose Selection. All that prints is the highlighted area.
