Print Only Selected Text from a Webpage in Windows

When you need to print info from a webpage, it’s annoying getting a bunch of ads and content you don’t need. If you don’t want to waste your ink and paper printing an entire page – just print what you select.

Highlight the text and / or images you want to print. Now in your browser go to File >> Print or simply use the [Ctrl][P] keyboard combination.

select text

The Print screen comes up. Select the Printer you want to use. Then under Print Rage check Selection and click OK.

This quick tip will save you a lot of paper, time and ink when you only want to print out part of a webpage.

    those who work on word document would obviously come across this and others if they hover around that dialog box would come to know about this. I dont know how, but my last comment was deleted!!!

    Have been using this tip for years to share information with my customers from web pages; unfortunately, I find that I can no longer accomplish this. All I get is the header across the page top and a blank page.
    All my HP printer updates are current. I am running Windows 7.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks!
