Hi Aibek Esengulov

I’m not technical & your guides have helped me a lot. Just got a Kindle Fire for Xmas & their quickie user guide is not very good & the guide on KF which is more detailed is not printable (as amazon told me this morning). I tried your site & could not find a guide so was disappointed. Then my son came round & I was moaning to him KF his Xmas gift to me. He said I can solve that problem went on the internet & found your KF guide for me (I don”t even think he uses or knows your site, tech savvy). Printing of that okay. So Thanks MUO you have saved my life once gain.

I print all your guides as I need to be able to follow the instructions whilst doing the task. Not tech savvy, 52 year old technophobe who’s trying to learn to embrace technology. Which your site has helped me a lot with. I have been trying to print off the above article but it is coming up in preview with the print being overlaid on top of each other & some of the text is missing. I have tried with another article & the same thing happened. I have never had this problem before with your site please help. I know some sites do this because they don’t want you to print their stuff. Is this what your site is now doing? I hope not as I find all your stuff so incredibly useful. I have learn to do stuff that I would never have been able to do. Please help and keep up the good work I live in London, UK. I love your site and am on the mailing list. Plus I would like to try some of these cool site & your suggestions in the articles below.

Hi Tina

Thank you for your response. When I print via my cannon Pixma iP4600 I use PDF, then open PDF in preview and then I print. (this is what I have always done up until I started having problems a few days ago). I have tried some other MSO articles but I am getting the same problem. I also tried printing your instructions and I am still getting this double over lay of print making reading impossible.

I read your instructions and went to Print friendly’s site. I am going to try their instructions but It seems very technical & I do not fully understand all the instructions i.e install on blogger & instructions for new blogger design. I need an idiot’s guide. I don’t know if there is any way you can guide me throught the process via email then I could print it.

But it looks like for some reason I am now unable to print anything from your site. Which is very disappointing. It appears the problem is with your articles not the guides as I have just printed off your kindle guide, having just been given one by my son for Xmas. Your guide is invaluable better than the 24 page guide provided by amazon. Thank you for that. I have an Imac by the way. Any help would be appreciated and I thank you both for your speedy responses. A MakeUser in need of dire help.

Hi Tina

A quick question I just clicked on the link for printwhatyoulike which actually is as simple as I need. I understand it, but my security is saying unsafe site with risky behaviours. Is this site okay as far as you are aware? (sorry had read your article first & tried going that route, given up on print friendly after seeing how easy printwhatyoulike is).

Thank you so much for your patience and I really appreciate your help. I must say I have never had cause to contact MSO but I am extermely impressed with your “customer service” and your speedy helpful responses. Please keep up the excellent work.

I am hoping that I get this printing issue sorted as I wanted to update my FB privacy setttings from your recent FB updates. I Love your FB tips I find them ernormously helpful.

Just a thought do you have any ideas what might be causing this printing issue?

Thanks again

Thank you again for the feedback, Jazzy! :)

What Aibek said is true, PrintWhatYouLike is safe. Your security software may be picking up on software behavior patterns that are also found in malware. In the case of PrintWhatYouLike, however, the warning is a false positive.

What printing issue are you referring to? Printing our articles or the ‘risky behavior’ warning? Didn’t PrintWhatYouLike work for you?
