This video shows you how to use HP Smart Print in Windows 7.
HP Smart Print allows you to print web pages just the way you want them, eliminating wasted
ink and paper.
HP Smart Print automatically selects the area of a web page that it thinks you want to print.
If the automatic selection does not include all of the content you want to print, you
can select areas in addition to the automatic selection.
You can also resize the selection box to better target the content you want to print. And
if necessary, you can select and remove content within the selection box.
Once you’ve selected the content to print, you can preview the content, and make additional
adjustments.
HP Smart Print runs on Internet Explorer versions 6 through 9.
To use HP Smart Print, open Internet Explorer by clicking its icon in the task bar.
Navigate to a page containing content you’d like to print.
As an example, this video will use a web page that contains content explaining ways to get
your photos onto your TV.
HP Smart Print allows you to print only this section of the page.
Click the HP Smart Print icon to open the program.
HP Smart Print automatically selects the content it thinks you want to print.
There may be one or more areas selected. Any selected content will be included in the page
you print.
You can enlarge any of the selection boxes to include additional content, or reduce them
to include only part of the automatically selected content.
To resize a selection box:
Place the cursor on the side or top of the box until the resize symbol appears.
Hold down the left mouse button and drag the border to resize the box.
When you’ve resized as needed, release the left mouse button.
Note that the selection box no longer includes the content you’ve excluded by resizing.
In our example, we’ve resized the top of the selection box to exclude all of the content
above the article we want to print.
You might need to scroll down to adjust the bottom of a selection box.
In our example, we’ve resized the selection box to exclude all content beneath the article
we want to print. Now, only the article is selected for printing.
You can further refine content selection by removing content from within a selection box.
To do this, move the cursor into the selection box.
The “Select area to remove” indicator appears.
Drag to select the area you want to exclude from printing.
The area you selected is removed from the selection box.
To undo a selection for removal, move the cursor into the selection box and click the
Undo selected area button in the upper right.
You can also add content that’s not currently included in a selection box.
To do this, move the cursor outside of a selection box.
The “Select area to add” indicator appears.
Drag to select the area you want to include for printing.
The area you selected is added to the selection box.
Once you’ve selected all of the content for printing, you can use the HP Smart Print
buttons to either print the content or display a preview, and format the content before printing.
Follow these steps to preview your content before printing, and make formatting changes
prior to printing.
First, click the Preview button at the top of the page.
A Preview window appears, showing how the printed content will appear when printed.
You can use the Preview window toolbar to format the content.
Margin controls allow you to adjust the margins, if needed.
If you’ve selected more than one page of content, controls at the bottom of the window
allow you to navigate through the pages.
After formatting the content, click the Print button.
Your page will print.
