Tech Tips for Writers is an (almost) weekly post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.
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.
