I have tried to print a coloured table from the internet and have been informed I have to turn on the background colour in my browser. I have printed the table and it has come out in black and white. Please could someone advise me how to turn the background colours on. Many thanks

This was found on the Microsoft Technet web site.

"All major browsers support it (Google, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.), but Microsoft Edge does not allow users to print background color of web pages. I've looked through all the Settings (basic and advanced) and do not see this option that was previously in Internet Explorer. Does anyone know of a registry setting I may add to have Microsoft Edge print the background colors of web pages? Seems like such a basic thing. I am surprised it has been removed from the interface."

I have found that I can set background printing on in Firefox and Chrome.

I have now downloaded Firefox and have been able to print the table complete with the background colours. Many thanks for your help Chris.
