Hi Alan,
There are a couple of ways to print a topic.

(1) You can print a topic by using the right click context menu - right click your mouse over any posting in a topic and select print review - this shows what will be printed - from the toolbar on the preview page select a number of pages to view - note that images will be shown in the preview and printed by this method - next send it to your printer by selecting the printer icon at the left hand end of the toolbar - what you see in the preview will be printed.

(2) Above the Google advertisements at the beginning of a topic there is a grey area which has the number of web pages (not print pages) in the topic at its left hand end - at the right hand end there is a 'Print' button - left mouse click on this button and you will see a simplified preview of the whole topic - note that images are not shown and will not be printed - the print button/icon on the preview tool bar has a drop down menu - from here you can select to send it directly to your printer or you can select to see another preview which is similar to that in method 1 above - proceed as in method 1.

Hope this helps.


PS If you wish to print just one posting of a topic the easiest way I know is to highlight (click and drag) what you wish to print, then copy and paste it to Notepad or MS Word if you wish to format it, and print it in the usual way from the chosen application.  A.
