Printing full page on computer

What am I doing wrong with my computer/printer setup.When I enlarge the image on my Toshiba Satellite Pro C870-1E2 laptop to print on my Epson Stylus SX515W printer it still prints small and fails to enlarge the image to the size I require.Please help as my eyesight ain't what it was.

As you found out, enlarging the view does not always enlarge to print...
...very few applications work that way.

What application are you working in?

My setting for scripture size on my computer is 125% for normal everyday use but there are times when I raise this to 200% for some item I wish to print.My system is Windows 7 Pro.

Sorry,but I fail to understand the gist of your reply.Will give example of problem:-I enter Google maps and seek directions to a destination,I then enlarge scripture to 200% from 125% but when printed it comes out at less than 125%.

Okay, so you are using a web browser to see and then print the information.

It is hard to print things as you want them while using a browser.

Maybe others know of a simpler way, but you can try this:

(Your screens will look different because I do not have the printer that you have.)

Start with the Print button on the map website:
Printing full page on computer-print1.png

Printing full page on computer-print2.png

Printing full page on computer-print3.png

Printing full page on computer-print4.png

You can change that 100 to 200 and then click on OK for each window until you can click on Print.

Excellent, johnsmith45jock.

That can be adjusted each time you print something and it seems to work back to at least IE8.

I should warn that the method that I mentioned might keep the 200% setting for every document that you print. You might want to set it back to normal 100% or to 125%. Some things might not print too well using increased percentages. Info might go off of the side of the page.
