Change IE 7's print preview default?

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by pjs, Feb 26, 2010.

    (Running IE 7 on Windows XP)

    On my computer, the default size for IE 7's Print Preview is "Shrink To Fit"
    Is it possible to change the default to 100% instead? If not, any way to
    write a macro to do this?

    Many thanks,

    pjs

    Robear --

    It turns out that you actually CAN do this with a registry change:
    ___________________________________________
    Go to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl

    Add the following key:
    FEATURE_STF_Scale_Min

    In that key, add the following DWORD value:
    iexplore.exe

    Set its value for 64 (hexadecimal) [the same as 100 decimal]
    _____________________________________________

    After adding this key, whenever I call Print Preview it now opens at 100%.

    Cheers,

    pjs
