Change IE 7's print preview default?
(Running IE 7 on Windows XP)

On my computer, the default size for IE 7's Print Preview is "Shrink To Fit"
Is it possible to change the default to 100% instead? If not, any way to
write a macro to do this?

Many thanks,

pjs

It turns out that you actually CAN do this with a registry change:
___________________________________________
Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl

Add the following key:
FEATURE_STF_Scale_Min

In that key, add the following DWORD value:
iexplore.exe

Set its value for 64 (hexadecimal) [the same as 100 decimal]
_____________________________________________

After adding this key, whenever I call Print Preview it now opens at 100%.

Cheers,

pjs
