Printing Background Colors In Internet Explorer

You may or may not have noticed this before but whenever you print a web page, the background colors and background graphics don't print. The text and all other graphics prints but the background doesn't. This is good, because you don't want to be wasting all of your printer ink (or toner) unnecessarily.

Sometimes, however, you may want to print a web page exactly as it is viewed on the screen, background and all. To make this possible you just need to temporarily change one simple setting.

  1. From the Internet Explorer menu, select Tools, then choose Internet Options...
  2. Click on the Advanced tab
  3. Scroll down until you see a printer icon on the left side of the list.
  4. Place a check mark in the 'Print background colors and images' option.
