Posted by   on

If you’re doing internet research and need to save a web page for future reference, downloading it as a PDF might be the way to go. But how exactly can you do so? If you’re looking for answers, you’ve come to the right place.


How to Save a Web Page as a PDF?


This article will give you step-by-step instructions on how to save a web page as a PDF using online extensions and web tools, as well as desktop, and mobile browsers. You’ll walk away knowing how to save essential web page information as PDFs with ease.


Saving a Web Page as a PDF


Saving a web page as a PDF can be done with the help of online tools and extensions, as well as with most browsers’ built-in tools. Here’s a list of some of the best extensions to help you convert web pages with ease, no matter the device and browser, as well as detailed instructions on saving a web page as a PDF across browsers.


Extensions and Web Tools


You can find plenty of online extensions and web tools to help you convert a web page to a PDF before downloading. Here are the three great options:


Desktop Browsers


What if we told you that you could save any page on any desktop browser with a single command? And that it’s a straightforward one too. You’re right – it’s “Print!” Most browsers have this function, and it’s the simplest and fastest way to save any web page as a PDF file.


Opera


Opera has one of the most straightforward ways to save a web page as a PDF:



  1. Launch Opera on your desktop.

  2. Click on the red “O” in the upper left-hand of the screen and hover over the “Page” option from the dropdown menu.

  3. Select the “Save as PDF…” option.

  4. Choose a location for your file.


Mozilla Firefox


Mozilla Firefox is the only widely used browser that doesn’t feature a built-in PDF printer. To save a web page as a PDF file with this browser, you’ll have to use the Microsoft “Print to PDF” option on your Windows 10.



  1. Launch Mozilla Firefox on your desktop.

  2. Click on the three horizontal lines in the upper right-hand corner of the interface.

  3. Select the “Print” option from the dropdown menu.

  4. A new window will open. Click “Print” from the upper left-hand corner.

  5. Choose the “Microsoft Print to PDF” option and hit “Print.”

  6. Name the PDF file and save it to the desired location.

  7. Click on “Save” to finish.


If you’re using Firefox on Mac, the process is almost the same:



  1. Launch Firefox on your Mac and click on the three horizontal lines.

  2. Click on the “Print” option from the dropdown menu.

  3. Under “Destination,” choose “Save as PDF.”

  4. Name the PDF file and pick a location to save it on your desktop.

  5. Click “Save” to finish.

  3. A new pop-up will open. Name the file and select the download destination on your PC.

  4. Hit “Save.”


There’s another method of downloading a webpage as a PDF on Safari:



  1. Launch Safari on your desktop.

  2. Click on “File” from the upper left-hand menu and select “Print.”

  3. A new pop-up will now open. Click on the down arrow in the bottom-left.

  4. Choose “Save as PDF” from the following dropdown menu.

  5. Enter the file name and destination in the pop-up window.

  3. Select “Print” from the dropdown menu.

  4. A new pop-up window will open. Click on the down arrow next to the “Destination” and choose “Save as PDF” from the dropdown menu.

Mobile Browsers


Saving a web page as a PDF on your mobile device is as simple as doing so from a desktop.


Let’s jump right in.


Opera



  1. Launch Opera on your mobile device and open the page you want to download as a PDF.

  2. Tap on the three vertical lines in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

  3. Select “Save as PDF” from the dropdown menu.

  4. Adjust the paper size, orientation, margins, and pages if needed in the pop-up window.

The Android Firefox version doesn’t currently support saving web pages as PDFs. At this point, you can take screenshots or use a different browser instead.


Safari


Just as with the desktop version, there are two ways to save a webpage as a PDF file on your mobile browser.


We’ll start with the method that involves the iOS screenshot tool:



  1. Launch Safari on your iPhone or iPad and take a screenshot.

  2. A small thumbnail will appear at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Tap on it.

  3. As the new screen opens, select the “Full Page” tab and add the markups you wish to include.

  4. Tap “Done” to finish.

  5. Select “Save PDF to Files” and choose a destination before hitting “Save” to finish the process.


You can also save an HTML page as a PDF by using the Share tool.



  1. Launch Safari on your mobile device.

  2. Open the webpage you want to save and hit the “Share” button.

  3. On the new Share Sheet window, select “Options” under the page title.

  4. Choose “PDF” from the list and select “Done” or “Back.”

  5. Select “Save to Files” on the Share Sheet.

  6. Choose a destination for the file and hit “Save” to finish.


Microsoft Edge



  1. Launch Edge on your mobile device.

  2. Open the page you want to save as a PDF and tap on the share icon from the bottom bar.

  3. Select “Print” and then “Save as PDF.” If you don’t see the “Print” option here, try the three horizontal dots from the same bottom bar.

  4. Tap on the PDF icon to save it as a PDF.

  5. Choose the location and hit “Save” to download.


Google Chrome


The instructions for Android and iOS devices are similar, but we will first list the steps for Android devices for the sake of clarity.



  1. Launch Chrome on your mobile device.

  2. Tap on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

  3. Select “Share” from the dropdown menu.

  4. You’ll see a pop-up menu on the screen’s bottom. Select “Print” from it.

  5. Tap on the down arrow showing at the upper right-hand corner and select “Save as PDF” from the dropdown menu.

  6. Hit the down arrow showing below “Paper Size” and customize your file’s size, color, and pages if you need to.

  7. Press the blue PDF icon circle on the right-hand side of the screen.

  8. Name the file and hit “Save.”


If you’re using an iOS device, apply the following steps:



  1. Launch Chrome on your iOS device and open the webpage you want to save as a PDF.

  2. Select the “Share” icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and scroll to the “Print” option. Tap on it.

Why Save a Web Page as PDF?


PDF stands for “Portable Document Format,” and it’s the best format for storing and sharing documents that can be opened by anyone regardless of operating system and prevent modification unless the recipient has permission. Maybe you need to send handouts to someone, but you’re afraid they might alter the information. Also, you may want to print a web page or any written document, but it’s crucial the formatting stays intact. As you can see, PDF files are incredibly convenient for sharing and have excellent graphic integrity.


How Are PDF Files Viewed?


Whether you’re using a mobile device or a desktop to open PDF files, there’s a built-in app that can open them. One of the most common programs for reading PDFs is Adobe Reader. However, most browsers can automatically open PDFs as well.


PDF All the Way


Although not always obvious, there are plenty of reasons for saving web pages as PDF files. No matter the ones that brought you here, we hope you found the instructions you needed. Remember that you can always use online tools and extensions if your browser (like Firefox on Android) doesn’t currently let you get the job done.
