How can I adjust the font size when printing off of Outlook.com? It comes out 400X larger. What should be 1/2 page turns into 3 pages. Explorer works fine

Every time I try to print an email, the font size is super huge. It wastes a lot of paper, ink, and is not usable for what I need it for. Printing from Word is normal. I've tried adjusting the settings on the print screen without any luck. It works perfectly fine on Explorer (so we know it's not our printer), but we don't really like using Explorer. I think it started happening after an update. How can I fix this email printing problem?

Did you check the print settings before printing not in preview but before the final print. Otherwise it could be firefox can't render outlook fonts correctly and try using IE if you have Windows.

Hi S_Greniams, Outlook has changed its interface a couple times in the past few years. When you print, do you already use the menu item in the page that generates a "print-optimized" version of the message (i.e., without sidebars) and the printer icon on that panel? I'm attaching a screenshot of what I mean.
