Cannot print from web

When I print something from the web, it prints tiny and in the upper left corner. Edge works fine. This is only something that happens when I print from the web; no matter how I set the controls. The print previews look fine, BUT!

Did you clear the cache/history and retry again.

Yes I did; I knew about that because it used to work. It has not worked for months.

I see this problem all over the internet help sites. No one seems to have an answer on who's update or glitch causes this. I've been to Microsoft, you guys, and I haven't had any luck until I realized it works fine on Chrome and Edge browsers, so I am now contacting you. If you can figure this out, it would be great, because I think your browser protects privacy more than Microsoft's or Googles. I don't trust either of them when it comes to privacy and tracking.

I've see this on Edge and clearing the cache/history fixes this problem. The privacy is only good as the user that uses the Browser or sites they are registered to. You have no way to know whom is watching your internet traffic activities since it goes through ISP before reaching the site your going to. I be more concern on sites you go to that you can't verify or make accounts on that can sell your data and by joining you gave them the permission track you or just using their site is permission to track you. Those cookies can be used for good and bad purpose.

You can try to "clear the saved print settings" via the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page.
