Q

I am trying to print recipes from All recipes, but when I use their button I end up with a mostly blank pages before and after the recipe.

Answer

I experimented and found that it really is a problem. When printing a web page it can come out as 1 or 100 when printed. Usually you can solve this by going to print preview first, and selecting just the specific pages you want.

When you use the All Recipes print function, it does get rid of ads, etc., that you would not want, but it also adds extra pages. It does not allow you to use print preview to select specific pages (though you can view how many will print out). I found that it worked better in Internet Explorere, adding just one blank page at the end, rather than Firefox, where it adds on before and after.

When something like this happens, and it can happen at other sites, too, the best work around solution to save paper is to copy the content you want and paste it in Word.
