IE-7 prints smaller than IE-6

IE-7 prints smaller than IE-6

I recently upgraded my browser to IE-7. However, it seems to me that the default print size has changed - to being smaller!

How can I set the default print size to be larger?

My girls keps bugging me about this...lol

RE: IE-7 prints smaller than IE-6


Did you check your default printer?

Go to File > 'page setup' > Printer > Properties

Make the changes you want here based on the paper size used.


RE: IE-7 prints smaller than IE-6

Is the default print size different across all sites, or just one site?

I ask because it is possible for any site to set up a print CSS which controls things like font size. If a site has done this badly, that could be the cause.

IE7 uses 'autofit' behavior by default.  Use print preview to change the print scaling.
