Steps to reproduce

Ever since I started using Edge I have had problems printing certain web pages, with the print displaying completely differently from what is displayed in the browser. The worst problem is when objects/text overlap so that I cannot actually read the text in the printout.
Many web sites produce faithful prints so I am sure the problem is related to how particular web pages have been created.
The attached screenshot shows how various web pages look in the browser and how they will appear in the print. It makes no difference if I use "Microsoft Print to PDF", “Adobe PDF” or a physical printer, and changing the print settings has no effect either.
I would be grateful for any assistance as I like to save PDF prints of particular web pages for offline viewing, and I never used to encounter this problem with IE.
Many thanks,

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We are able to reproduce the problem but find your sample exhibits the same behavior in all other browsers. This is an aspect the web master of each site will need to address. Optimizing Edge performance is one of our highest priorities, and we will constantly work to improve this independently from other browser performance.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
