How to print an entire CHM File?
By on January 17th, 2008

Have you ever tried printing an entire CHM file from Windows? Chances are the file won’t print properly. This is a known bug, and there’s a workaround to printing an entire CHM file easily.

How to print the whole of a CHM file?

Here are the steps you need to take if you want a full CHM file to be printed:

  • First, open the CHM file. It should open up in the default CHM Viewer
  • Click on the topic you want to print
  • Click the ‘Print’ button in the CHM Viewer Toolbar
  • You’ll be asked if you want the particular selection alone, or also all the topics under the heading. Make a selection and click ‘OK’
  • In the Window that appears, DO NOT click the ‘Print’ button
  • Instead, navigate to C:\Documents And Settings\[Your User Name]\Local Settings\Temp\
  • Now, you should see a .HTM file with a name like ~hh3256.htm
  • Double-Click on the file and wait for it to open in a browser like Internet Explorer
  • The file should contain the parts of the CHM file that you wanted to print
  • Go to File >> Print and get the file printed!

So, that is how you print multiple pages/topics from a CHM file.
