It is a common notion that WebPages are ideally meant to be viewed on our computers or handheld devices and they are not to be printed on papers. But for scenarios in which printing a webpage is a must, we have to keep in mind this thing that a webpage that is fit enough on our screens might take 2-3 papers when printed. But for Google Chrome users, there is an extension on the Chrome Web store that will help you in saving printing ink and papers while printing a webpage. Get to know about this extension after the break!
Print Plus Extension
This particular Google Chrome extension allow users to select important sections and parts of a webpage for printing, in this way the unselected portion is not printed saving both the printing ink and the papers.
How To use Print Plus for Chrome?
After installing the extension you will see a printer like icon appearing next to your Chrome’s URL bar. Just click the button and you will see a horizontal bar appearing on top of the Webpage displayed on the screen. Clicking on the Print button will send the print command.
Selecting portions of webpage is also very simple, just mouse over any section of a webpage and you will see an orange outline appearing across different parts of the page. Print Plus extension by-design identifies the portion to select depending solely on the position of your mouse pointer.
Now for the printing, you have to click any selection on the Webpage and you will see that it will be highlighted automatically with an orange box. This orange box basically represents the print area.
After the selection, just click on the Print Button visible on the extension’s bar at the top and see your selection getting printed.
I found this extension quite useful because it works with some email services like Gmail as well, meaning that you can print the body of the email only without caring for the other stuff over and below it. It is also useful for printing articles from webpage that is filled with flashy ads and junk. You can install the Print Plus extension from Google Chrome web store.
