[ad]Dear Computer Lady,
When I come across a very interesting quote, article, and not the whole thing, I want to print it out! .
My old PC would let me highlight the words, then copy and print.
With my new Christmas “Dell” I can’t figure how to do the same thing. I do not want to print the whole article or page, just the facts of interest! !!!
Thank you!! Vera
The ability to highlight and print only certain areas of a page is not a Windows feature, instead it is a feature that some (but not all) printers include with their drivers.
If your printer drivers have the feature, all you need to do is highlight the part of the page, and when you are setting up your printer options (where you select the number of copies you want to print) There should be a section called, “Print Range” here you can select the current page or a range of pages, or a setting called, “Selection”.
When you click on “Selection” and click “Print” only the selected portion of the page will print. My current printer (pictured above) does have that feature.
If your printer does not include that option, and you want to print part of a web page, there is a website: http://www.printwhatyoulike.com/ that will help you.
I have not used printwhatyoulike.com but there are quite a few people who love it.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
