As a working technology teacher, I get hundreds of questions from parents about their home computers, how to do stuff, how to solve problems. Each week, I’ll share one of those with you. They’re always brief and always focused. Enjoy!Q: I only want to print part of the webpage, not the entire thing. Other than copy-pasting a selection into a Word doc or using PrintKey or Jing (they’re not on some of the computers I use at work or friends’ houses), how do I quickly print just a selection?
A: In these economic times, you might also simply want to save paper. Here’s how:
- Highlight the desired text
- Press Ctrl+P
- In the Print dialog box that appears, in Print Range area, click Selection, then click OK.
Now, only the selected portion of the Web page will print.
