Have you ever experienced the frustration of printing an article on a web page and ended up printing everything but the article? I feel your pain. Been there (many times) and done it; and the end result was wasted paper and ink (and money).
To help overcome that frustration, save money and help save a few trees, I encourage you to take a look at the online (cloud app) service called “Print Friendly”. It is a FREE, user friendly service specifically engineered to help you print web pages.
There are actually two methods to using Print Friendly, with the latter method described below, being the easiest and most efficient.
Method 1: Whatever webpage you desire to print, copy the web address, go to the Print Friendly web site [ HERE ] and paste (or type) the site into the form box and hit print preview.
Method 2: At the Print Friendly web site [ HERE ] use your mouse to drag the Print Friendly bookmarklet to your browser’s bookmark toolbar. The beauty of this is that any web page you desire to print, simply visit the site where the article is located, then click on the Print Friendly bookmarklet on the toolbar. The web page will be magically converted, ready for printing, right before your eyes.
Using either method will activate the Print Friendly print preview. At this point you can delete elements (paragraphs, images) prior to actually printing the selection. Other notable features, is that you can save the selection to a PDF file, email the selection or tweet the selection.
