Remove Header & Footer from Print Preview in Google Chrome

Recently I had a requirement when one printing the web page should not display header and footer, basically they are automatically inserted by the browsers. Here is what this looks like:

Notice the selected part in above image. This gets printed and seriously they are not required.

What are the ways to resolve this?

I am going to share the solution for Google Chrome browser, not sure this will work on IE or not. But unlike the first way give below IE or other browsers must have such settings somewhere.

First Way

In the print preview windows we have opportunity to uncheck ‘Header and footers’, look at the image give below:

This way, we can remove the header footer but we need to do this every time we print. So the second way give below will be permanent solution.

Second Way

The permanent solution for Google Chrome browser is to use following code in CSS.

@page{margin:0px auto;}

This will most likely throw off page layout when printing. Now when print, Header and footer check box will no longer be seen.

Hope this helps.


  1. I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing issues with your blog. It appears as though some of the text on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
