   Product Tip of the Month

Printing Internet Pages

Have you ever noticed that when printing from any web browser, a header and footer to each of your printed pages?  Have you ever wanted to remove this information or add some of your own information to these areas?  This months tip shows how to do just that!


In this tip, we will learn how to:

The steps provided are for Internet Explorer Version 7 - Each version of IE and other browsers have similar steps.

1. Remove the default information on Internet printing.
2. Learn how to "Add" our own information to your printed reports.

1. Open Internet Explorer, select the print tab, then "Page Setup..."

2. In "Page Setup" we look further at the "Headers and Footers" section where we see information is already in the "Header" and "Footer" areas.  This we have highlighted in red.

We can do many things with these two areas.

a.  We can delete these, leaving them blank. 

This will remove the printed lines which normally show at the top and bottom of our printed pages.


b.  We can enter information to customize our printed pages.

Example - Let's say you are printing confidential information such as an employee's 401k or similar type print job. 

We could add your "Company Name" to the "Header" and "Confidential Information" to the "Footer" area.

Delete the current information listed, then add what information you want to show then click OK.

Here is what an example looks like after  adding this information.


   Keyboard tip of the month


It's hard to just do one keystroke this month as we show the CTRL+C and CTRL+V shortcuts.

CTRL which stands for "Control" is used with the "C" and "V" keys to copy and Paste.


Anything you copy /paste using a mouse for, these shortcut keys can do exactly the same function.  Select what you want to copy, press the CTRL key and hold, then pg a mouse for, these shortcut keys can do exactly the same function.  Select what you want to copy, press the CTRL key and hold, then press the C key then release.  Click where you want to paste, then press the CTRL key and hold, then press the V key.  That's all there is to it!  Common mistakes are not holding the CTRL key while selecting the other key you want to use.

That was easy, and all without having to purchase a Staples Easy Button!
