PDF is easily the most supported format across various platforms, from desktop computers to mobile devices. For this reason, people love to store their documents in PDF, so it would be easier to view later on any device and without an internet connection.
Speaking of which, website pages only exist in the realm of the internet. But, it’s possible to store it on your computer under the name of PDF.
In this guide, I will show you how to download a web page as a PDF with just a modern browser, like Google Chrome — no extension or third-party tools required.
1. Open the web page you want to save as a PDF. For example, I’m using this Wikipedia article.
2. Click on Chrome’s icon menu, and select Print. You could also use the Ctrl+P shortcut.
3. Under the Destination section, make sure to select Save as PDF.
4. And then customize the parameter of the document.
5. If everything looks okay, click Save.
6. Select the PDF download directory, then hit Save.
7. Now the web page has been downloaded as a PDF.
8. You may open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader or just a regular browser.
This PDF support on Google Chrome is such a useful, yet underappreciated feature. It’s technically just a PDF viewer, but you can use it to separate certain pages from the rest of the document.
If you love to store PDF documents locally, don’t forget to compress them to reduce their size and save valuable disk space at no cost.
