I do not know much about computers and need help to know how to print things off from face book time line? You just can't hit print or the information gets all mixed up.
I am sure there is someone out there who understands how to do it.

He's right. First, find what you want to print. Hit the PRINT SCREEN button on the right hand side of your keyboard. This takes a "snapshot" of exactly what you're looking at. Then open up the windows PAINT program. Once that's open hit ctrl-v. That the control key and letter V at the same time. Or you can go to EDIT/PASTE in the menu above. This will take that "snapshot" and put it on the screen as a .bmp (bitmap) file. Then you can save or print it from there. Be aware, that you will be looking at the very same thing that was on your screen when you hit the PRINT SCREEN button. You may want to edit out what you don't need or want.
Have fun.

Thank you all for your help. I really need to take some kind of computer class. Thanks again for your help.
I have tried and tried. I can print from the "old style" but the new time line gets all messed up when printing.

This is a download link for free software, Open Office. It's a good basic office suite. This gives you an excellent word processor, that will let you do things like write letters and recipes. You just need to follow the instructions on the link to download and install the software.

In the meantime? Try putting your cursor over your highlighted area and RIGHT click on your mouse. This should bring up a menu that will allow you to PRINT SELECTION. Hopefully that helps.

Copy and paste doees not work for most items in Facebook (such as recipes, etc). You must take the screen shot, take it through paint, and print from there.

Okay, you are going to love me! I spent several hours figuring how to print recipes from Facebook. Finally succeeded! Ready? Click Save the recipe to your timeline by clicking on "share to your timeline." Then click "See More" on your recipe. Highlight recipe (those who don't know--you left click on your mouse holding it down. You will see it highlighting on your screen.) Click the tab on your computer(PrtScn SysRq). Tab is located on your keyboard on the upper top right. This takes a picture of the highlighted recipe. Next click on File. Then click Print. Now the real important part. After you click on print, choose "PRINT SCREEN." That's the most important part. Your printer will print what you highlighted on the recipe. You won't waste all that ink printing ads on the facebook page. Hope it works for you! Let me know!

Oh, I need to correct something on my instruction. Instead of clicking on print screen, click on SELECTION. Belita Cernigliaro

there is a desktop utility called PRINT SCREEN.
you go to the site and download the utility.
It does the same thing as print screen but you don't have to go to "paint" to locate the file. The items you have on your screen will go directly to your printer to print.
