This is my first hit at an Internet Explorer add-in to support “width-fitted” printing. Have you ever printed a web page only to find that the right-hand edge is missing? This is for you. First, this download page will install the control. After installation, close the browser window and reopen a new one. You should have a new printer icon with a small ‘W’ next to it on the toolbar. Press this to bring up a print dialog which will then print the page fitted to the width of your paper. Alternatively, hold down the Control key while pressing the button and you will get a print preview instead.
To remove the control, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Temporary Internet Files Settings, View Objects. In the window that pops up, find the IEPrint control, right-click and choose Remove.
I’ve tried this on IE6 with WinXP and Win2K. It ought to work on IE5.5 too.
