How to Shrink a Web Page So it Fits On One Sheet Internet Explorer 7

Updated on April 21, 2012

Introduction - Shrink to Fit a Web Page

It drives me nuts when I can't print a web page on one sheet of paper. It is such a waste. If you are not careful you might wind up printing several pages on you printer just to get the one page you need.

If you are using Internet Explorer 7 and want to shrink a web page so it fits easily on one sheet of paper, you have come to the right place.

There is a simple way to easily and cleanly print a web page to your computer printer.

Step 1

Open Internet Explorer 7 and navigate to the web page you wish to print out on your printer.

Step 2

Look to the top of Internet Explorer and select File.

Step 3

In the drop down box that appears on your computer monitor select Print Preview.

Step 4

In the preview window that appears on your computer screen look just above your document.  There will be a box that will allow you to adjust the size of the text you are printing out.  Select  - Shrink to Fit.

This will ensure that  the information you wish to print will have the proper print size to fit all on one page.

In the same drop down box, you can also select from an array of other sizes to reduce or increase the print size.

Step 5

Then select the printer icon at the top left (or hit alt + P on your computer keyboard) and print out .

I hope that helps you to shrink to fit page size for printing on Internet Explorer 7 easy.
