What is the URL of the offending site?

If you can't make it work with just one page, you could print to a PDF first, then select your range to print from the PDF.

What exactly are you typing in the Range box?

What exactly are you typing in the Range box?

Hi--Boy you are super super fast. Thank you so much.

  I am typing the same number in range box, ie. page from 2 to 2. There is no place if you want to print only one specific page or at least I don't know about it. So I am continually copying and pasting. Thanks for your response and any help.

I think it's only certain websites, as I tried it IE and then in Firefox and the print preview page allowed printing a specific page. I went to drugs.com with no problem. As you can tell I am a layman. I have to find a past website where it's not working. Thanx again

I'm sorry I don't have the site (s) at hand right now. My mother is not well, and I've been trying to print out med warnings ike crazy. I didn't know about printing to the PDF file and doing it that way. That's a great idea and I will try it. Thank you so much for your expertise and time!
