The printer prints the fonts too small when I try to print a page off the Internet.

My new printer is the Photosmart D110a. It is printing documents from Microsoft word but when I try to print a document from an Internet site, the font is so small I cannot read it. How can I adjust the printer settings so the font size is a 12? I  do not think I have the wireless stuff set up correctly but I don't need to do any cloud printing or things like that. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks for responding to my problem. I am using the new Miscrosoft Windows 7, at least I think that's it. I bought the computer last September.  Obviously, I am not very comute litterate but I seem to manage OK.

OK, well, when you print, use File > Print or Control-P on the resulting window click on Preferences, then on the Effects tab.  See if you are printing in Acutal Size, like this:

 The page that comes up for print preferences is not the same as you showed. if i call for a print off the web it comes out so small under a 1/16 per letter?????

Did you look at the "Effects" tab as shown above?

OK, when you start a print job in your browser (using File > Print or cntl-P, not with a print icon), on the resulting page there should be a setting for the page scaling.  Set it to "fit to page" or equivalent.

 

It would be helpful to know what browser and what version of Windowz.

OK, can you enter a percentage scale (like 150%)?
