I DO NOT operate full screen.  The very small down arrow in a G-mail email does not show unless you are in full screen!  I have to either go full screen or move the scroll bar at the botton to get to silly little arrow that allows me to print.  Why can't they make a PRINT button and move it left.

Ron, In Windows, you can always invoke a print command by simultaneously pressing the <Ctrl> key and the 'P' key together, which should bring up a print dialog box.
In general, 'keypad shortcuts' are a useful way to avoid having to scroll or dig through pull-down menus for commonly used actions.

Ctrl-P works but it prints everything!  In G-Mail it prints tshe Compose column and the incoming Mail column as well and not just the message! 
How can you contact G-Mail folks?

Gary:
Part 3 of the video says to click on the miniscule little down arrow and then click print.  I know that.  That problem is that I am stubborn and don't operate full screen and the little damn arrow does not appear unless I grab the bottom scroll bar and slide it right.  That is horrible.  Why can't they put the little arrow to the left?

If you're using Chrome, and willing to do a few minutes of work (I will provide instructions), I have a fix for ya...

1. Visit https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/?src=ss
2. Click the green Add to Firefox button. Click Install. Click Restart.
3. When Fireflox comes back up, log into your gmail account. Verify that you current URL looks like: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox  If not, make a note of it and press onward.
4. Upper right corner of the browser where the wee clipboard and house icons are at, you should see a new icon - looks like a square with an "S" in it. Click this.
5. In the menu that pops up, click Write New Style, then click For This URL
6. In the editor thingy that now pops up, paste the below code (see screenshot below for exact placement):

.aap {
    float: right;
    position: absolute;
    left: 10px;
    top: 60px;
}

It should look like this: https://i.imgur.com/h8k5EAQ.png

Note: If your URL was NOT "https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#inbox", then you might need to (but probably not) edit the line in the Stylish editor that reads: "@-moz-document url("https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox") {" so it matches whatever your email URL is.

7. Click the Save button; it will prompt you to enter a name for this "style". I used "Gmail".
8. Once it is saved, flip back over to you Gmail tab as revel in the glory that is computer witchcraft - your Utility dropdown button is now on the left side of your emails. 

You only have to do the above one time (or until you remove the Stylish extension).

Similar procedure for Chrome, if anyone wants it message me.
