  • Hi

    does the same happen in compatibility mode or from another browser?

  • Hi Bargain Hunter,

    I agree with Ed (DareDevil57), the compatibility issue is the cause of some common problems.

    Here is how to add your websites to compatibility view:

  • Thanks for your input. So you are saying I have to do this every time I want to print out something from IE11? This sounds like a lot of trouble. This never happened with the earlier versions. Is there something with the compatibility of the printer I'm using an HP 2175. In fact just now after printing a page I received an error saying the printer can't print out the footer.

    Try changing the options to avoid doing that?  (Or choose a shorter footer.)
