    In case you missed it, I repeat it again. There are different page layouts when printing a web site. One of them is to print whatever you see on screen (in IE it is called "as layout on screen"). Another possibility is to print the current frame (depending on browser) and another to print only what you have selected with the mouse ("as selected on screen"). If the print job is the first option, that is tries to fit whatever is on screen at the page, almost always it is printed too small. If you set scale at 100% but again try to print everything, chances are that the printout will be cropped and unfortunately the crop is not what we want, but it tends to start from top left of the screen. The only way to make sure that you print exactly what you want at the correct size is to select it with the mouse and then set scale to 100%. Assuming the margins are not too large, it will fit the page and look nice. Sometimes you may have to switch from portrait to landscape layout to make your selection fit the page at 100%. Other times I have good results when printing at 80% or 90%.

    In Internet Explorer File->Print Preview (assuming you have enabled the menus). To enable the menus right click on the windows title and click on Menu bar.

    In Microsoft Edge, click the ... button top right and select Print. It shows a preview before printing the page. Couldn't find how to print selection only, so forget Edge, try that in IE.

    Yeah i can get the print preview but not seeing the tab or setting i seen before that had the frame layouts. It might have been with the Ricoh driver that i installed but wouldn't print to IE or Email but would print everything else which still don't make since. That driver had a lot of settings that might have allowed me to print the way it is supposed to.

    Haven't used Edge, just one-two times to see it, so I don't know all the tricks. But why bother with it anyway? If it doesn't work the way you want, just use IE or Firefox. I use IE and it works just like in Windows 7 and 8.1

    Which mailing program are you using? Could you install another free mailing program and setup your e-mail there? You could install Windows Essentials and use Windows Live Mail.

    There are free e-mail applications such as incredimail. Maybe you could try one of these. If you have Microsoft Outlook, you could try that as well.
