Printing shrink in IE7 and IE8

Some of my users facing the font shrink-ed when they tried to print the web page with Internet Explorer (IE) version 7 or 8.

To solve this case, if you are using version 8, make sure the option Shrink to Fit option in Page Setup menu, in your IE, is unchecked.

If you are using Internet Explorer version 7, you need to add the Registry Key by doing the steps below:
On the command prompt, type the following statement:

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_STF_Scale_Min" /v iexplorer.exe /t REG_DWORD /d 100 /f

Click OK to confirm when warning window is showed.

Or, download this file, unzip the file, then run the file inside.
