Using Printfriendly is very simple. First you copy the URL (website address) of the article you want to print, it is found at the top of your browser in the area marked by the blue circle in the picture below. Copy it by either highlighting the whole text line and pressing Ctrl+C, or by right clicking on it with your mouse and then left clicking on 'copy'.
The second step is to go to printfriendly.com and paste the copied URL in the space where it says "enter a url". To paste the URL, either press CTRL+V after clicking on the typing space, or click on the space with your right hand mouse button, and then use left click to select the option 'paste'.
With the URL in place press "print preview" and the site will create a printer friendly version for you. If you want to, you can further edit this page, removing pictures or parts of the text you don’t want. You can even copy the text to a Word document and edit it from there. I'm sure this site will save you a lot of expensive printer ink, and help you ensure that all the information you want is available whenever and however you need it.
