When printing a web page in Internet Explorer 10, the browser is printing the URL of each link directly below the actual link itself.

Here is a screenshot:

Is there a way to turn this off via HTML/CSS or Javascript or is this a 'feature' of ie10?

Does it work in chrome, or firefox? If so then I would just use one of them and forget about IE. – nate Jul 22 '13 at 18:34

This behavior is not the result of a browser setting but rather is due to some clever CSS in the page's print style sheet. Visiting the site shown in your screenshot using another browser (FF) and printing has equivalent output.

Removing the following rule from the 'Print styles' section of style.css would prevent the printing of URLs after each link.
a[href]:after { content: " (" attr(href) ")"; }
