While trying to optimize Tweaking4All for printing, I noticed how difficult it can be to see the print preview and tinker with the CSS code.
Well, until I found this trick ...

In Google Chrome, go to developer mode (F12).

Press +Shift+P (Mac) or Control+Shift+P (Windows, Linux) to open the Command Menu.

When visible, start typing "render" until you see the option "Drawer Show Rendering" - click this option.

Now more info becomes available, where you'll need to scroll down until you see "Emulate CSS media type". Here you can select "Print".

Google Chrome will instantly show your webpage as if it would prepare it for printing.

Note: This may work in other Chromium browsers as well (eg. Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Opera).
