Whenever you print a web page, you typically get everything on it: images, ads, etc., most of which you probably do not need or want. Excluding these unwanted items from your print job will not only save you money in the form of reduced paper and ink, but will also print faster. To easily do this, check out PrintWhatYouLike.com.
This free site works entirely in the browser and allows you to make on the fly modifications to any web page and then save or print it. You can selectively remove images and ads, increase the font size, resize elements and lots more. There are shortcut tools which allow you to easily do common tasks, such as remove all images so the process isn’t overly tedious and can avoid the need to paste into Word for editing before printing.
A service like this is handy to know about, so keep it in mind the next time you print.
