Make the documentation printer-friendly.
The documentation is not currently printer-friendly. While the content can be printed, there is a lot of baggage at the beginning as well as loads of empty pages at the end.
Thanks for the feedback! Please share an example and the browser you are using. We are not able to reproduce the issue.

Attempting to print pages such as
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd419663.aspx results in unusable printouts (see attached PDFs), whatever the browser (IE11, Edge, Firefox).
This affects most pages on Microsoft sites these days.
The very time-consuming workaround is to copy/paste the page content into a blank Word document, reformat it there for correct (no clipping...) printing, and print from Word.
Steps to repro:
- open a page such as https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd419663.aspx in a web browser such as IE11
- hit the "Print" button
- correct printout
- unusable printout: overlapping content elements, blank pages, missing content

Just do a print preview using Chrome. The baggage at the top seems to be fixed (although I'd also remove the "In this article" section), but there are still a lot of empty pages at the end.
Only 2 out of 9 pages have content, the rest are blank.
