Articles on the Internet contain advertising and other clutter. If you print them, you often get all the trash. However, you can cut off ads and other extraneous items using a feature built into your web browser.
We recommend using the reading mode in web browsers to avoid this. In read mode, your web browser creates a special view with only the text and important pictures. However, this mode is not just for reading. You can also print and get a better, optimized printed version. You only need to enable the reading mode of the web browser before printing the article. How it works:
- Google Chrome : Chrome has a hidden reading mode that you can enable. Then click Menu> Distill page. If you do not want to mess with hidden markers, we recommend that you open the web page in another browser and print from there.
- Mozilla Firefox : In the address bar, click the article-specific "Switch Reader View" button or press the [F9] button.

- Microsoft Edge  : Click in the address on the book-shaped icon "View View" bar or press Ctrl + Shift + R.
- Apple Safari : Click on the icon " It looks like a few lines of text. You can also press Cmd + Shift + R.
after you have enabled the read mode in your browser open the corresponding menu and click "Print" as usual, which will print the optimized, minimal version of the web page, which will also appear in the print preview window.
When you try to print a Web page that is not an article, either the Reader view icon is not displayed or is grayed out. This is because the read mode only works with web items because your browser can automatically remove them.
