The PDF (Portable Document Format) is a popular format for quicker and secure file sharing. It supports several file types including texts, rich media, 3D objects, interactive elements, etc, and provides recipients less control over the files shared.
Sometimes, you may want to save a web page as a PDF file. It helps you to read an important article later even without an internet connection or share it with others by email and other methods.
We recently explained how to convert a Gmail email to PDF format in this post. Today we’re going to cover the web page section.
Saving Any Web Page in PDF Format
Let us start.
1. Google Chrome
Open a web page that you want to save as a PDF file. Right-click on the main screen and choose ‘Print’ from the showing options.
Choose any of the options in the Destination checkbox – Save as PDF, Save to Google Drive, Save to OneNote, and so on. Save a web page as PDF to download it to your device. Change layout type if needed.
Click on the ‘Save’ button to finish.
2. Mozilla Firefox
Mozilla Firefox doesn’t have built-in options to save a web page in PDF format. So you should use third-party add-ons for doing the job.
Save as PDF is simple and easy to use add-on for Firefox users to convert web pages. Once installed, it will add a small icon on the top-right corner of your browser.
Open a web page and tap the Save as PDF icon.
It will take a few seconds and when completed, you will get a pop-up window with an option to download the file. Click on the ‘Save file’ radio button and hit the OK button to finish.
3. Microsoft Edge
Open a web page on Edge first. Tap the three dots icon from the top-right corner of your screen.
Choose ‘Print’ from the menu. It will open Edge’s printer settings.
Click the drop-down box of printer names on the top. Choose ‘Microsoft Print to PDF’ option.
Hit the ‘Print’ button to finish. The output file will be saved in the Documents folder of your computer.
