Windows 7: How to print History in I.E. 9

How to print History in I.E. 9

I am trying to print the history of websites visited. I know I can open the history and click Print screen on my keyboard but when I print, it prints way to small. No matter how big I zoom in. So I was wondering if there was a different way?
I have windows 7 home premium x64.

FWIW: you might have to have show hidden and system files turned on in the folder options
in control panel.

A couple of work-around suggestions: You could try the Preferences/Options on your printer to change print/document size. Or you could save the Prt Scrn document as a .jpg (by saving it to your photo editor), and then just increasing the size of the image. You can make the text as large as you want, and print it in several pages if you have to. (You can also approximate the zooming in that you tried to do by cropping away the sections of the image that you don't want, and then increasing the size of the remaining image.)

What about using the built-in Windows Snipping Tool rather than "PrtScn"?

I would think using the Snipping Tool would be fine also. The important thing is being able to edit the image so that you can read the text. So, you could theoretically not only use Prt Scrn or the Snipping Tool to save the image as a .jpg so that it can be edited by your photo editing ap as an image --- but you could also even save it into a Word doc and use the Crop feature to crop out the unwanted parts and the Enlarge feature to enlarge the image to any size you wanted.
