Windows 7: Prints out so small

Prints out so small

I have windows 7. When I go to print out an email and a receipt from a company I purchase from, it prints so tiny. I finally have had to resort copying it into Word and printing it out. But that gets frustrating.
Any idea why it is so small? It wasn't on Vista

Are you using Outlook, or hotmail / gmail / yahoo for email?

This may help, but what I usually do if it is too small, is instead of going to print, I go to File > Print Preview. From there you can adjust the size it will print and it allows you to see how it will look when you do print it.

I am finding that Windows 7 has quite a few quirks and are set backs from XP, which was the greatest.

.. Or, when you click Print from within yahoo, you can:

1. Click properties
2. Click on Page Setup tab
3. Next to Page Layout, select Fit-to-Page Printing

It's not a windows issue. What printer and browser are you using?

It did work atmos by fit to page - but should I still have to do that when I never had to? But thanks, at least I can see this without a magnifying glass.

It's hard to say why you never had to do this before, or why you have to do it now. I'd have to play around a little to figure it out... But glad this worked for you!
