Here’s a way you and your company’s users can use less ink when printing from websites.
Most people are annoyed by the header and footer information most browsers include on the paper when a page is printed. That information normally includes the page, title and the date printed.
It’s not often necessary to keep that info on the page — the source can almost always be more easily found by using a search engine than typing out the entire URL.
Here’s how you can turn off those headers and footers, as explained by Lifehacker:
- In Firefox: Go to File -> Page Setup, then click the Margins & Header/Footer tab. Set every header and footer to –blank– and click OK.
- In Internet Explorer: Go to File -> Page Setup, then set every drop-down in the Headers and Footers section to -Empty-. Click OK.
- In Opera: Go to Menu -> Print -> Print Options and untick the Print headers and footers checkbox.
