I am trying to find a way to print a few pages from a Kindle book I bought. Is it possible to do?

If you are just using the Kindle App for PC, I know you can copy and paste to a document. I don't have a Kindle so I know nothing about printing with it.

You can't print from Kindle books. If you have an e-Ink Kindle you can put it face down on a copier and make copies. If you adjust the zoom on the copy machine you can get pretty close to full-size pages. You can highlight the page and then go to https://kindle.amazon.com to view your highlights. You can copy and paste from there into a Word document but you won't retain the formatting. Finally, you can view the book on Kindle for PC, Kindle for Mac, or the Kindle Cloud Reader and take a screenshot that you can then print.

The problem with printing is mostly due to DRM and publishers denying the right to print. However, there are some methods that may work for small selections by treating them as clippings. I never print mine so haven't tried them myself.

From Printcountry.com: "Kindle does not support direct printing. However, you can print e-books from your Kindle by connecting it to your computer. But before you can do that, first, open the file from your Kindle that you would want to print. Highlight the text you would want to get printed. As you highlight your preferred texts, they are copied into a file, and saved into "My Clippings" in your Kindle. By this time, you can connect your Kindle to your computer through a USB cable. As soon as the device pops out of your computer's desktop, open that folder and look for "My Clippings." Open the file, and then, you can easily print it." You can read the full source article here: http://printerinkcartridges.printcountry.com/printcountry-articles/inkjet-printer-ink-cartridge-use-tips/how-to-print-from-your-kindle-and-other-e-book-readers.

Other methods that may work are explained here: http://howto.cnet.com/8301-11310_39-57483577-285/how-to-print-e-book-pages/

If you are using the ipad app, printing is easy... Just do a screen capture and print the picture.

This method worked on older Kindle models, but I haven't tried it lately.

<alt> + <shift> + G (all at the same time) will snap a screenshot. Once you've taken the shots you want, hook your Kindle up to your computer. The screenshots will be in the documents folder as .gif files.

To print from a Kindle Paperwhite (or any Kindle I would guess):

1. Highlight the passage you want to print. To do that, put your finger on the screen and then move it down to select the passage you want to highlight. If you want to highlight on the next page too, move your finger to the bottom of the screen; select highlight in the dialog box.

2. Connect your Kindle to your computer.

3. Open the Kindle Folder to view the documents and find the My Clippings file.

4. Open the Clippings file and find the passage you just highlighted (probably at the end). Right clicking, you will be able to manipulate all the contents of the My Clippings file, and can easily copy the document you want to print and paste it into a WORD (or comparable on Mac, I presume) file to print or whatever. The formatting won't be there, though. Amazingly simple, actually.

Another round-about way would be to highlight the section you want to print and then go to your kindle highlights page. You should be able to copy & paste the highlight into a document and print without trouble.

Edit: you can find your highlights at this web address: https://kindle.amazon.com/

You need to look in the upper right hand corner where it says "hello guest" and click on the downward arrow. It'll give you an option to log in and you can see all of your highlights there.

when I plug my Kindle into the computer it says
USB Drive Mode
If you want to read or shop on you Kindle while continuing to charge over USB, please keep the cable attached, but eject Kindle from you computer.
I cannot get past this to view my highlighted sections.
Please help

I just got a wireless printer and it is all synced up to my iPhone so I can print wirelessly. However, I am supposed to be able to print from my kindle as well, but I don't know what you need to get a "Print" command. I'm not talking about printing kindle books, but my HD has all kinds of stuff, docs and photos, that I could print. If I can find a print button anywhere.

Nancy the answer to this will be unique to your printer and the App for your Fire linking it to the Printer.

@Elaine, hopefully you've gotten an answer by now, but if not, ....
view your highlighted sections from your computer, not your kindle .... look for your kindle as a "drive" and search the documents on the "kindle drive"
OR, if you are charging your kindle from your computer and want to use your kindle,
on your computer, lower right hand corner. hover your pointer over the small icons showing there until you find one that says something about "ejecting usbs", right click on that one, then select the "eject" option. Your kindle will look normal again but will be connected and charging through your computer.

Nancy, assuming that you are talking about a Fire, as opposed to an eink Kindle, you need to download the compatible app for your printer from the Amazon App Store.

Well, I appreciate all the suggestions, and I did manage to sign my kindle onto my printer but discovered that the printer considers it a separate network so I have to sign back onto my router to use that, and it is a long password.

I don't feel I really need to print from my HD Fire kindle, so never mind the hassle.

I can highlight the page or section on the page - but how do I print? I'm using the Kindle app on an iPad.

Most Kindle books are copy protected, so you cannot legally convert them.

Thanh, this is a public forum. Unless you like having lots of spam, I strongly suggest that you modify your post to remove your email address.

As King Al said, it is illegal to modify books that are copy protected.
