Hi,
I have to change Browser page Setup Information in Javascript.
When I print a page, the url information is displayed at bottom of the page. I dont want to display Url information in the page. If I change browser settings (i.e) File -->Page Setup--> Footer , and removed '&u' from footer, then its not printing url information. Whether I can do this in Javascript ?? Can anyone help me how to handle it??

JavaScript can not do it.

Would you not get ticked off if every page that you visited changed your browser settings on you?

Re-read Eric's reply.

No matter how badly you want to do it, you cannot. The browser settings are not yours to change, they belong to the user.
