Print clutter free

A clutter-free print option removes surrounding material, such as ads and site navigation, from a printed web page. We're working to release a clutter-free printing option that will be available directly through the print dialog. In the meantime, you can use Immersive Reader as a workaround for clutter-free printing. Note that Immersive Reader may not be available for all websites.

  1. Open the website you want to print.

  2. In the address bar, select the Immersive Reader icon  , or press F9 (on Windows devices) to enter Immersive Reader.

    Select Immersive Reader

  1. At the top of the page, select Settings and more  > Print  , or press Ctrl+P in Windows or Command+P in macOS.

    Tip: You can also right-click on any empty space on the page and select Print in the context menu.

  2. Select the print settings you want and then select Print.

Print part of a webpage

To print only a part of a website, do the following:

  1. Click and drag over a section of text or images to select the part of the website you want to print.

  2. Right-click the selected text and then select Print  in the context menu.

  3. Choose the print options you want and then select Print.

Add the date to the page header
