Printing Help

To print any of our free puzzles, simply click the "Print This Puzzle" button below each puzzle. After doing this, a new box or tab will appear with the puzzle showing. No other items from that puzzle page will print. The color background may be showing behind the puzzle, but it will not print. Also, your printer dialog box will open. When it opens, you can simply select print. You may want to check the sheet orientation in your printer's dialog box to ensure that it is set properly ("landscape" or "portrait"). Below each puzzle it is mentioned which orientation your printer should be set at for best results for that particular puzzle.

If you should have any other items printing on your sheet besides the puzzle, its clues or solution then you may need to remove the headers and footers. These addition items are usually the page number, file name, date, etc. To turn off the headers and footers, you will need to close the printer dialog box which opened and select "file" on the menu of the box with the puzzle showing. Then select "print preview" on the menu. This will let you change the orientation of the page and, depending on which browser you use, may also let you turn off the headers and footers. If you do not have access to changing the headers and footers in this area, you will need to select "file" on the menu bar again. This time you will need to select "page setup" on the menu. You should find headers and footers here. Just remove any letters or symbols in the header and footer lines. You may want to write this information down before you delete it in case you want the headers and footers back in the future.

More detailed information about page setup and printing with specific web browsers can be found at the browser's respective websites or help pages with the location of such information usually found in the menu bar under help. This may vary by browser.
