Editors' Review

GreenPrint World is a free Windows utility that helps eliminate wasted pages while printing. Installation takes some time, and the software requires Visual C 2005, which is included if necessary. GreenPrint will also put four new programs into your Windows start-up menu, add a browser helper object for Internet Explorer, and add three printers (GreenPrint PDF, GreenPrint MailPDF, and GreenPrint). During installation, GreenPrint will ask you to select a default printer, but the printer can be easily changed later from the GreenPrint interface.

After installation, you can print from any application to GreenPrint, which will automatically remove pages from your printout based on rules like "completely blank pages" "pages with an image only," or "Pages 95% blank with less than 5 lines of text," and then pass along your document to your printer with the unnecessary pages removed. Double-clicking on any page removes it from the print job; double-clicking adds the page back.

The app keeps a running tally of ink and paper saved and greenhouse gas emissions reduced through regular use. It also lets you create PDF files or e-mail PDFs directly with the printer's GreenPrint PDF and GreenPrint MailPDF, respectively.

Printing from Excel sometimes created a Microsoft Document Imaging (MDI) format file to be saved locally instead of sending the document to the printer, but we didn't find any other major bugs. The version 1.1 update adds a "Buy Green" drop-down menu to the interface. It provides recommendations for products in nine categories, such as paper, ink, software, and technology recycling.

"Reliable no-nonsense printing"

February 16, 2009  |  By helenlmms

 |  Version: GreenPrint World 1.1

Pros

Ability to delete needless images and/or pages

Cons

Would like to be able to delete sections on the Green Print screen, but don't know how to do that or if it is possible.

Summary

This is an excellent product that I've recommended to my friends. I first read about it in the Wall Street Journal online Technology section and even paid for my first subscription. For the rest, see the above

"clumsy & slow to use--not often required"

February 12, 2009  |  By jomar

 |  Version: GreenPrint World 1.1

Pros

When the copy to be printed is full of unwanted items it can be of help.

Cons

Too slow to analyze. Frequently I could make adjustments manually to the copy quicker than the program could. On my last use, the program froze and I had to delete it from my computer as it could not be terminated. Unknown why.

Summary

It's a good idea, but not useful to me.

"buggy installer if you had previous version installed"

February 10, 2009  |  By rsattler

 |  Version: GreenPrint World 1.1

Pros

saves paper when printing web pages, free

Cons

annoying dialog boxes during printing, if you don't have it as the default printer it gets in your face each time you print. poor installer

Summary

while it's free and it does save paper when printing web pages, it's annoying dialog boxes and buggy installer (when used to update a previous version) make this a no-go for me.

"Not very useful"

January 29, 2009  |  By kjacobson2

 |  Version: GreenPrint World 1.1

Pros

Can remove pages you don't want or need to print.

Cons

For a 22mb program all it does is remove (for example page # 5 of an 8 page document. Cannot resize, etc. just removes a page here or here.

Summary

Does very little and can cause problems. Was trying to print a very important doc and couldnt get out of it to use regular print mode. Had to completely uninstall program first. I wouldn't waste your time with this one.

"Excellent if tired of wasting paper"

January 22, 2009  |  By joma5004

 |  Version: GreenPrint World 1.1

Pros

Get a chance to see what is up for printing and YOU get to decide what pages to print!

Cons

Slows printing a bit. Wish it allowed edicting of printed pages.

Summary

Even though it slows the printing process a tad, it is worth it. No more page after page of junk when all you wanted was the first page. Recommended as a must use!
