The Chrome browser doesn't have any settings for changing or disabling header and footer data that gets printed when you go File > Print.

Apparently this is being developed but until it is does anyone know how to disable this in Windows XP.

Chrome on the Mac and Ubuntu doesn't do it so I assume it is down to a system setting that by default doesn't print header/footer information unless software over-rides this?

From what I've read it can't be done.

Sounds like a job for an extension, then. – Joel Coehoorn Dec 15 '10 at 18:13
It can be done in later versions. – Braiam Oct 30 '13 at 18:36

To print a page from Chrome without the headers and footers:

  1. Press the key combination Ctrl-P, which brings up the printing dialogue along with the Print Preview
  2. Uncheck the box next to "Headers and Footers"
  3. Click Print.
