Hello, I would like to print a detailed street map of my hometown zoomed in so we can see all of the street names. When I expand on the screen how do I print in that 'expanded' format?

There is a wiki page to help when a paper copy is needed. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_on_Paper

If you use the "Share" icon on the right of openstreetmap.org, one of the options is to export to an image. You can set a custom box, select output format, and (I think this is what you want) select a custom scaling factor so that the image is "zoomed in" to the level you want. Be aware that the more detail, the bigger the image you're going to get. Once you get the image, you should be able to print that image file the way you want.

If you need something more complicated, you may want to try a tool like Maperitive.
