how can i make printing more streamlined/clean? no ads, extra stuff when i print in other words

more options

i saw in an article somewhere an option for "simply printing" but i don't see that option in the printing preview like it says it should be. I have a user who just wants web pages (for instance, his flight info)...to print just the important parts of it and not all the fluff on the sides, etc.

Hi steve.burk, if a page has the Reader View icon in the address bar, the Simpify Page checkbox will be enabled on the Print Preview screen and have the same effect.

Reader View generally isn't available for web pages that don't look like articles or blog posts under the hood. To clean up other pages, you would need to use an add-on like the following:

I concur with that recommendation for Print Edit WE. I have been using it for many years, does a real good job of allowing the user to "clean-up" webpages for printing only the information I want printed. That coupled with the "Scale" control in the Print Edit WE / Preview window can allow me to print a solitary page when the Print Preview might show 10 or more pages with the info I want printed stretched out over many pages.
