How to not print webpage backgrounds

Posted By On November 15, 2004 @ 12:11 PM In Printing Help | No Comments

It’s a matter of ink consumption, or perhaps some people just don’t want the distraction of a background when they’re printing a web page. Whatever the case may be, a few folks have contacted me with questions on how to print a web page without the backgrounds. I’m glad to say that not only do I have an answer, but it’s super easy to do, too! Let’s do this!

With Internet Explorer:

1. Click the Tools menu, Options, and select the Advanced tab.

2. Scroll down to the “printing” category. Make sure the box for printing backgrounds is NOT checked. Then click OK.

That’s it. If you were printing out backgrounds before, this should take care of the problem. Conversely, if you want the backgrounds, make sure
that little box is checked.

With Mozilla Firefox:

1. Click File, Page setup

2. Make sure the “Print backgrounds” box is unchecked.

I didn’t find an AOL way to do this.
