MS Word: how to print larger (screencapture)?

Someone has sent me some graphs/pie charts and technical diagrams, but they are in word format (seems like he did a screen capture because I can see the browser page he used and his desktop). When they open in MS Word, each diagram takes only about 1/3-1/4 of the page and I have to use the zoom function to enlarge it to about 150% to see it properly. Is there any way for me to print them in a larger size (I have not tried yet, but I am assuming that if I print them, they will still only take up 1/3-1/4 of the page, and that the zoom only works on-screen and not on the print-out....is this correct)?

my approach would be to save the image, enlarge it in an imaging program, and then print it from there.

do alt+printscreen and paste it in a new infranview page (free imaging program) and then resize it.

here's the download, in case you don't have infranview. it's free and pretty useful

you can right-click the image and select Copy in the menu. Then paste into your imaging program of choice.

If you can see the browser page, then you could go to the actual website address shown in the screen captures and start from there - copy the original graphics or images from the original web page and paste them into the imaging software of your choice, or alternately, just maximize the browser window and print screen and paste that into MS-Word and then crop the image and resize it (Format, Picture) so that is full page.
