Windows 7 Tutorial

Whenever you print a document of some kind in Windows 7 (web page, Word or other Microsoft Office documents, etc.), the entire file will be printed, which may not be what you want; a previous tutorial explained how to print only the first page of a document, but the tutorial you are reading will show you how to print exactly the portion of text you want, simply by selecting it! Note that we wrote this tutorial for Windows 7, but the same technique works just as well on Windows Vista or Windows XP.

(Keep in mind that in some cases, for copyright reasons, you are required to print the entire document, including copyright notice and other intellectual property legalese.)
