You can conserve paper by only printing the parts of your document that you need.
By using the “Print Preview” option in the File menu before you send your document to the printer, you can make sure that what you are printing is what you intend to print. If the print preview shows you that the content that you want is only on the second and third pages, make sure to print only those pages.
If you are printing a document or spreadsheet, you can choose to print only the selection. In Microsoft Excel, define the print area to avoid wasting paper.
If you are printing out a website, note that many websites offer a “Printer-friendly” version of their web page which contains only the information you need. These pages display fewer ads and unnecessary graphics and are optimized for printing, making them more readable.
For websites that are not set up with a “printer-friendly” version, a variety of web browser tools and extensions can help you print less. Using these extensions, you can click on unwanted graphics to remove them before printing, or even remove ads automatically while browsing the web.
