• print list of URLs when printing from internet

    • This topic has 4 replies, 4 voices, and was last updated 4 years ago.

    Years ago, when printing an article or other source material off the internet, I had my printer set up to also print a list of the URLs associated with links cited in that article. IIRC, I had this set up for both my home and work printers. I distinctly remember going to the printer settings to check a box that would set up this addition.

    Since then, I’ve been through several Windows iterations and several printers, and no longer have that capability, no matter how I search through the printer setting options/pages. I’ve searched online, but can’t get any resolution.

    Any suggestions?

    I’m using Windows 10, Chrome browser, Brother HL-2380DW printer, Lenovo Ideapad Z710

      Internet Explorer 11 can still do that, as it has a “Print table of links” checkbox on its Print, Options tab.

      I’m not sure if any more modern browser does it, even with an added extension.

      IE11 should be on your Start menu under Windows Accessories.

      As b indicates, this is almost definitely a browser setting rather than a printer setting. You probably set it up originally via a browser’s printing settings.

      Also this is sort of getting less useful with web design being the way it is nowadays, with links by one definition including all the style definition .css files, and scripts and… and then some make their “links” instead be script triggers that sort of work like links.

      Still, there are extensions for Chrome and Firefox that (claim to) do at least something like this. Don’t know of any offhand that’d just add the ability to integrate the link list to a printed web page, but at least you can get a separate list as a second print job with those.


      And then there’s the external method for the experts and other adventurous, along the lines of https://www.howtogeek.com/124736/stupid-geek-tricks-extract-links-off-any-webpage-using-powershell/ … and equivalents in Python and whatever.

      so, Thanks, all,
