SlideShare is a global presentation-sharing network. Along with sharing text-based presentations for use in schools, businesses and government offices, SlideShare's network allows presentations to include MP3 audio syncing, embedded videos, live Web content and more. SlideShare's point-and-click interface allows you to upload and manage a number of presentation documents. However, printing these files isn't as intuitive. If you want to print a file from the SlideShare network, you need to use your browser to print the uploaded file.

Open the SlideShare file in your Web browser.

Navigate to the desired slides using the arrows at the bottom of the slideshow window.

Right-click on a SlideShare slide. Select "Print" from the list of options.

Click on the option labelled "Selection." This forces your printer to only print the file you clicked on rather than the contents of the entire browser window.

Click "Properties."

Click on the "Features" tab followed by "Landscape." SlideShare files are arranged horizontally for easier display, but printers are often set-up for vertical printing by default.

Click "OK" to return to the main printing window.

Click "OK" again to start printing the SlideShare presentation document.
