Using a new Dell XPS with thir newest Printer and a Dell 19inch LCD monitor. Everything works fine and prints everything from my harddrive. However, when I have to print something right from the Internet (for example this page) I am losing part of the page. If in Portrait I lose about 2 inches from the right side. If I switch to Landscape it prints OK but uses 2 pages.
I keep thinking aspect ratio but don't know how to adjust--my monitor is showing 4-3 aspect--Any clues would be helpful. Am using MS browser MSIE6--
I know I can go to Dell and ask them-but hoping someone here has an idea.

In the printer setup there will be setting "Fit to Page". This is nore than likely your problem.

Thanks acklan for the response--I thought also "fit to page", but the page I was trying to print is a popup and wouldn't give me any option except "print" no "file" menu etc. However, I did manage to copy/paste to wordpad---RTF--I am thinking the problem with losing some of the page to do with the HTML and no way to resize the fonts downward--THKS again

That sounds right. You are welcome. I will keep looking into it and if I find you a solution I will post it.

You could also try taking a screenshot and pasting it into word or wordpad or whatever word processor you use...
