How to convert a web page to PDF.
Take a website with you — even without internet access. Learn how to convert web pages to PDFs with this tutorial.
The easiest way to show off a web page is to access it with a browser, but that’s not always possible. You might be attending a meeting at a location with no internet access or want to highlight parts of the website functionality with comments or notes for your fellow developers.
Good news — you can convert a web page to PDF . Even better news is that doing the conversion is easy. And once you have a PDF copy, you can add comments and edit text to experiment with proposed revisions and promote collaboration on improved content. You don’t need to know a single line of HTML code. Learn how to save any web page as a PDF simply using Adobe Acrobat.
Convert an open web page from your browser to a PDF.
The fastest way to convert an open web page to PDF is to use the Adobe PDF toolbar. If you have the toolbar installed in your browser, follow these steps:
- Open an HTML web page in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Firefox if you’re in Windows. On a Mac, open the web page in Firefox.
- Select the Convert to PDF tool.
- Give your new PDF file a name.
- Select Save and choose the location for your file.
And voila — the conversion is done. You can open the file in a PDF viewer and make edits with your Adobe Acrobat software or with Adobe Acrobat online services.
Turn a web page into a PDF.
If you’d like more functionality and options, do the conversion in Acrobat. Simply follow these five steps:
- Start the Create PDF tool in the Tools view.
- Select Web Page as the conversion type.
- Paste in the web page URL or select browse to manually locate an HTML file.
- Set your conversion preferences.
- Select Create to save your PDF.
How to save a web page as a PDF without cutting it off.
If you do not have the toolbar extension or Acrobat Pro software, a simple alternative is to save a web page as a PDF. In your internet browser, click File > Print > Save as PDF.
Typically, a PDF will preserve the content in a web page better than a direct printout, but you might still have issues with formatting or mysteriously missing text when you try to print a web page or save it as a PDF. To avoid this problem, click Print Preview in the browser menu. Change the view to landscape or vertical to find out which view is optimal. Landscape will likely include all the text you need.
Polish your converted PDF.
The converted PDF will function like the original website, with all the links, images, and graphics. However, since it is a PDF, you can use Acrobat to add comments, text, and notes, and edit your PDF in many more ways.
With Adobe Acrobat, you can find all the tools you need in one place to share and create PDFs . You can trust that you’ll get optimal formatting with intuitive, easy-to-use tools. Discover everything that you can do with Acrobat today, whether you need to convert Excel documents to PDFs, compress PDF documents , rearrange pages , and more.

Web pages and PDFs
The core of a web page is a file written in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Typically, the HTML file includes associations with other files that either appear on the web page or govern how it looks or works.
When you convert a web page to PDF, the HTML file and all associated files—such as JPEG images, Adobe FLA files, cascading style sheets, text files, image maps, and forms—are included in the conversion process.
The resulting PDF behaves much like the original web page. For example, the images, links, image maps, and most media files appear and function normally within the PDF. (Animated GIF files appear as still images, showing the last frame of the animation.)
Also, the PDF functions like any other PDF. For example, you can navigate through the file by scrolling or using bookmarks; users can add comments to it; you can add security, form fields, and other features that enhance it.
In preparing to convert web pages to PDF, consider the following factors, which affect how you approach the conversion process:
How much do you want to convert?
If you want to convert only selected areas of the currently open web page, use PDFMaker from within Internet Explorer . If you want to convert several levels or all of a multipage website to PDF, work within Acrobat.
Do you want to create a new PDF from the web pages or to append the converted pages to an existing PDF?
You can do both in either Acrobat or Internet Explorer , but you choose different buttons or commands to accomplish these things.
To convert Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) language web pages to PDF on a Roman (Western) system in Windows, you must have installed the CJK language support files while installing Acrobat. Also, it is preferable to select an appropriate encoding from the HTML conversion settings.
Convert web pages to PDF in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox (Windows)
Acrobat installs an Adobe PDF toolbar in Internet Explorer (version 8.0 or later), Google Chrome, and Firefox. Using the commands on this toolbar, you can convert the currently displayed web page to PDF in various ways. For example, you can convert the entire web page or selected areas of it. Or, you can create a PDF or append the converted web page to an existing PDF. The toolbar has additional commands that initiate further actions after conversion, such as attaching the new PDF to a new email message or printing it.
Convert a web page to PDF
To convert a webpage to PDF, do the following:
For Windows, use Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome.
For Mac, use Firefox.
To create a PDF from the currently open web page, choose Convert Web Page To PDF . Then select a location, type a filename, and click Save .
To add a PDF of the currently open web page to another PDF, choose Add Web Page To Existing PDF . Then locate and select the existing PDF, and click Save .
(Internet Explorer and Firefox only) To create and print a PDF from the currently open web page, choose Print Web Page . When the conversion is complete and the Print dialog box opens, specify options and click OK .
(Internet Explorer and Firefox only) To create a PDF from the currently open web page and attach it to a blank email message, choose Convert Web Page And Email . Then specify a location and filename for the PDF, and click Save . Type the appropriate information in the email message that opens after the conversion is complete.
For any of these options, to open the output PDF after conversion, select View Adobe PDF Results .
The Adobe Create PDF icon gets added to the supported browsers when you install Acrobat. If you’re unable to see the Create PDF icon, do the following:
In Internet Explorer, choose View > Toolbars > Adobe Acrobat Create PDF Toolbar .
In Firefox, choose Tools > Add-ons > Extensions , and then enable the Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF extension. (For more information, see Enable Create PDF extension for Mozilla Firefox .)
In Google Chrome, choose Customize menu > Settings and then click Extensions from the left pane. Enable the Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF extension. (For more information, see Enable Create PDF extension for Google Chrome .)
Convert part of a web page to PDF (Internet Explorer and Firefox)
- Drag the pointer to select text and images on a web page.
To create a new PDF, choose Convert To Adobe PDF or Convert Web Page To Adobe PDF (Internet Explorer) or Convert Selection to Adobe PDF (Firefox). Then select a name and location for the PDF.
To append the selected content to another PDF, choose Append To Existing PDF (Internet Explorer) or Append Selection to Existing PDF (Firefox). Then locate and select the PDF to which the selection will be added.
Convert selected areas in a web page to PDF (Internet Explorer only)
You can use the Select option to select specific areas on a web page to convert. You can use this option to convert meaningful content on a web page and omit unwanted content, such as advertisements.
On the Adobe PDF toolbar, click Select (next to Convert).
- As you move the pointer around the web page, a red dotted line indicates areas of the web page that you can select. Click the areas to convert. Selected areas appear in blue boxes. To deselect an area, click it again.
- Proceed with conversion as usual.
To deselect all areas and exit the select mode, click Select again.
Convert a linked web page to PDF
To add the linked web page to an existing PDF, choose Append Link Target To Existing PDF . Then locate and select the existing PDF, and click Save .
To convert the linked web page to a new PDF, choose Convert Link Target To Adobe PDF .
The right-click menu also includes the options Append To Existing PDF and Convert To Adobe PDF . If you select either of these options, the currently open web page, not the selected link, is converted.
Convert web pages to PDF in Acrobat
Although you can convert an open web page to PDF from Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Firefox, you get additional options when you run the conversion from Acrobat. For example, you can include an entire website in the PDF or just some levels of a website.
Open Acrobat and choose Tools > Create PDF > Web Page .
Enter the complete path to the web page, or click Browse and locate an HTML file.
To change the number of levels in the website to convert, click Capture Multiple Levels . Enter the number of levels to include, or select Get Entire Site to include all levels from the website.
Some websites have hundreds or even thousands of pages. Converting a large website can make your system slow and unresponsive, and can even use up available hard drive space and memory, causing a system crash. It’s a good idea to begin by downloading one level of pages and then go through them to find particular links to download.
Stay On Same Path
Downloads only web pages subordinate to the specified URL.
Stay On Same Server
Downloads only web pages stored on the same server.
Click Settings/Advanced Settings , change the selected options in the Web Page Conversion Settings dialog box as needed, and click OK .
Click Create .
You can view PDF pages while they are downloading; however, you cannot modify a page until the download process is complete.
You do not need to wait for the conversion to complete before adding more requests. While a conversion is in progress, you can convert another page to PDF and that gets added to the queue. The number of requests in the queue are indicated by the Pending Conversions field in the Download Status dialog box.
Add an unlinked web page to an existing PDF
Use this procedure to append pages to a writable PDF. If the original PDF is read-only, the result will be a new PDF rather than new pages in the existing PDF.
- Open the existing PDF in Acrobat (the PDF to which you want to append a web page).
Choose Tools > Organize Pages > Insert > Insert from Web Page .
Enter the URL to the web page you want to append and select options, as described for converting web pages to PDF, and then click Add .
Once the web page is converted to PDF, you see the Insert Page dialog box. Choose exactly where you want to add this page in the existing PDF, and then click OK .
Add a linked web page to an existing PDF
- Open the previously converted PDF in Acrobat. If necessary, scroll to the page containing links to the pages you want to add.
Right-click the web link, and choose Append To Document .
After pages have been converted, links to these pages change to internal links, and clicking a link takes you to the PDF page, rather than to the original HTML page on the web.
Convert a linked web page to a new PDF
- Open the previously converted PDF in Acrobat. If necessary, scroll to the page containing a web link you want to convert.
Right-click the web link, and choose Open Weblink As New Document .
In Windows , you can also convert a linked page from a web page displayed in Internet Explorer , Google Chrome, or Firefox, using a similar right-click command.
Copy the URL of a web link
Use this procedure to copy the path for a web link to the clipboard, to use it for other purposes.
- Open the previously converted PDF in Acrobat. If necessary, scroll to the page containing links to the pages you want to copy.
Right-click the web link and choose Copy Link Location .
Change web page conversion options
The settings for converting web pages to PDF apply to the conversion process. The settings changes do not affect existing PDFs.
- From Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Firefox, in the Adobe PDF toolbar, choose Convert > Preferences .
- From Acrobat, choose File > Create > PDF from Web Page , and then click Settings .
- From Acrobat, choose Tools > Create PDF > Web Page , and then click Advanced Settings .
On the General tab, select options under Conversion Settings and PDF Settings, as needed. Click the Settings button to see additional options for the selected File Type.
- On the Page Layout tab, select options for page size, orientation, and scaling, as needed.
Web page conversion options
The Web Page Conversion Settings dialog box is available from within Internet Explorer , Google Chrome, Firefox, and Acrobat.
Specifies the conversion settings for HTML and Text. Choose a file type and click Settings to select the font properties and other characteristics.
Creates a tagged bookmark for each converted web page using the page title (HTML Title element) as the bookmark name. If the page has no title, the URL is used as the bookmark name.
Create PDF Tags
Stores a structure in the PDF that corresponds to the HTML structure of the web pages. This structure lets you create tagged bookmarks for paragraphs, list elements, and other items that use HTML elements.
Place Headers And Footers On New Page
Places a header and footer on every page. Headers show the web page title, or if no title is available, the web page URL or file path. Footers show the web page URL or file path, and the date and time of the download.
Page Layout tab
The Page Layout options specify a selection of page sizes and options for width, height, margin measurements, and page orientation.
The Scaling options are as follows:
Scale Wide Contents To Fit Page
Rescales the contents of a page, if necessary, to fit the width of the page. If this option is not selected, the paper size adjusts to fit the contents of the page, if necessary.
Switch To Landscape If Scaled Smaller Than
Changes the page orientation to landscape if the new version of a page is less than the specified percentage of the original size. Available only if you selected portrait orientation.
HTML Conversion Settings
This dialog box opens when you select HTML on the General tab of the Web Page Conversion Settings dialog box and then click the Settings button.
Lets you specify the following options:
Sets the input encoding of the file text from a menu of operating systems and alphabets.
Ignores any encoding that is specified in the HTML source file and uses the selection shown in the Default Encoding option.
When Page Doesn’t Specify Encoding
Uses the selection shown in the Default Encoding option only if the HTML source file does not specify a type of encoding.
Language Specific Font Settings
Use these settings to change the language script, body text typeface, and base typeface size.
Sets the default colors for text, page backgrounds, and web links. Click the color button to open a palette and select the color. To use these colors in the PDF, select Force These Settings For All Pages. When this option is unselected, the default colors are applied only for pages that don't have a specified color scheme.
Determines whether to disable multimedia capture, embed multimedia files when possible, or link to multimedia (such as SWF files) by URL.
Retain Page Background
Specifies whether to display colors and tiled images in page backgrounds and colors in table cells. If options are deselected, converted web pages sometimes look different than they do in a web browser, but are easier to read when printed.
Includes images in the conversion to PDF.
Underlines textual web links on the pages.
Expand Scrollable Blocks
Expands scrollable blocks to include complete information on the converted PDF.
Sets the input encoding of the text for a file.
Sets the default colors for text and page backgrounds. Click the color button to open a palette, and select the color.
Wrap Lines At Margin
Inserts a soft return when the text reaches the edge of the text area on the page.

How to save a webpage as a PDF
Everyone eventually comes across a webpage they need to save for offline research or sharing with others. You could just copy and paste the link, but sometimes it’s nice to have the page as an image you can view offline, mark up, or print. The most flexible solution is to create a PDF file you can view or send anywhere.
Microsoft edge, alternative way to save in safari, firefox for mac, extensions and web tools, mobile browsers, safari for ios/ipados, option 2 safari for ios/ipados, chrome for android, chrome for ios, what you need.
Browsers and mobile browsers, such as Firefox, Safari, and Chrome
With our step-by-step instructions, we'll cover the most popular browsers and see how they save webpages as PDFs. If you need more conversion options, we can also help you convert webpages to JPG , .docx , or Excel .
Note : These instructions are accurate for the latest version of the respective browsers at the time of publication. Older versions may have slightly different methods but should be broadly similar.
For most browsers, the Print function is the fastest and most effective way to save a webpage to PDF. We know choosing Save Page As … would be the logical choice, but that option is for saving pages in a web format, not as a contained file like a PDF. The Print option is the tool you need.
To save a webpage to PDF using Chrome, follow these steps:
Step 1: Click the Three-Dot icon in the top-right corner and choose Print … from the drop-down menu. Alternatively, press Ctrl + P ( Command+P if on Mac).
Step 2: In the resulting pop-up window, click the Down Arrow to the right of Destination and select Save As PDF in the drop-down menu. You’ll see a preview generated in the left pane, as shown below.

Step 3: Click More Settings to view options for changing the paper size, scaling, and so on if needed.
Step 4: Once you make the necessary changes, click the Save button and select a destination on your PC.
Step 5: Click a second Save button to complete.
This method applies to the newer browser based on Chromium . While an earlier version of Edge exists, it is no longer supported . The screenshot below is of Chromium Edge.
Step 1: Click the Three-Dot icon in the top-right corner and choose Print from the drop-down menu. Alternatively, press Ctrl + P .
Step 2: In the following pop-up window, click the Down Arrow displayed under Printer and select the Save As PDF option listed on the drop-down menu, as shown above.
Step 3: Under Layout and Pages , you can choose the orientation and page range you want to save the webpage in. You can also click on More Settings to view and adjust other options like paper size and scaling.
There are actually two ways to save a webpage as a PDF file in Safari:
Step 1: With Safari active, click File on the menu bar and choose the Export As PDF … option on the drop-down menu.
Step 2: On the following pop-up window, enter a file name, select a destination, and click the Save button. That’s it!
If you want a little more control over the PDF’s information, Safari provides a longer method:
Step 1: With Safari active, click File on the menu bar and choose the Print … option on the drop-down menu. Alternatively, press Command + P to open the printer window.
Step 2: On the following pop-up, click the Down Arrow located in the bottom-left corner, as shown above. Select Save As PDF on the resulting drop-down menu.
Step 3: Another pop-up appears. Here, you can enter a file name, title, subject, author, and keyboards, and you can also set security options.
Step 4: When you’re done, select a destination and click the Save button.
Step 5: If you want to edit the PDF further, we suggest taking a look at some of the best free PDF editors .
Out of the four popular desktop browsers, Firefox is the only one that doesn’t include a built-in PDF printer. Instead, it relies on the Microsoft Print to PDF function in Windows 10.
Step 1: Click the Three Horizontal Lines icon located in the top-right corner and select Print … in the drop-down menu.
Step 2: In the following window, click the Print button in the top-left corner. As a quicker alternative, you can simply type Ctrl + P to open the print menu.
Step 3: Select Microsoft Print to PDF from the printer options and click the Print button when ready.
Step 4: Choose a name and save location and then click the Save button.
The process is similar on Firefox for Mac but forgoes the Microsoft Print to PDF. To print a PDF using Firefox on Mac:
Step 1: With Firefox open, select the icon with three horizontal lines, then scroll down to Print . Alternatively, hit Command+P .
Step 2: In the Print dialogue box, go down to the bottom-left corner and select PDF from the drop-down menu.
Step 3: Select Print , and then from the Save dialogue box, give your PDF a name and choose a save location.
Step 4: Alternatively, extensions can give Firefox the ability to save to a PDF. PDF Mage is a popular, well-liked option.
Do you want more options for creating specific kinds of PDFs? Do you need to customize PDFs before they’re created? There are many online extensions and web-based tools that specialize in converting HTML to PDFs, with plenty of options for how the PDF looks and where it goes. These options are particularly useful for developers and businesses that need to convert multiple pages at once.
Paperplane is a developer-friendly conversion tool with a variety of options. For quick users, you can just drop in a link and choose a page size and orientation to quickly create a PDF. Businesses may want to pay for a package that includes more options for in-depth PDF management (free trials available).

PDFShift is a quick online tool designed for speed. For long-term use, all you need is a free account, but the real value is in the full set of tools that allow for mass conversions of HTML at high speeds for serious projects.
NovaPDF provides business-friendly licenses for its PDF creator and manager. You can simply print to NovaPDF to automatically generate a PDF and customize the “printing” job with NovaPDF’s options for overlays, watermarks, digital signatures, and more. It’s a good tool for more detailed work.
If you pay for a subscription to Adobe services (or you’re willing to start a free trial), there is an additional option. Adobe allows you to install a PDF toolbar in your browser. This creates a simple Convert to PDF button that allows for superfast conversions on the fly. The toolbar works on Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox and could be more convenient if you regularly use Adobe tools.
Here's how to convert a webpage to a PDF using mobile browsers:
There are two ways to create a PDF using Safari on the iPhone and iPad. The first method uses the screenshot tool:
Step 1: Open a webpage in Safari and grab a screenshot. This method depends on your device.
Step 2: On the following screen, tap the Full Page tab and perform any markups you want to include. Tap Done when you’re finished.
Step 3: Tap Save PDF to Files on the resulting pop-up.
Step 4: Select a destination on your device and tap Save to complete.
The second method uses the Share tool:
Step 1: Open the webpage in Safari and tap the Share button.
Step 2: On the drop-down (iPad) or pop-up (iPhone) Share Sheet, select Options listed under the webpage title, as shown above.
Step 3: Select PDF on the following list and then tap Back (iPad) or Done (iPhone)
Step 4: On the Share Sheet, tap Save to Files .
Step 5: Select a destination and then tap Save .
Follow these steps to save a webpage to PDF using Chrome for Android and iOS:
Step 1: Open your desired webpage in the Chrome app, tap the three-dot icon located in the top-right corner, and tap Share in the drop-down menu.
Step 2: A gray pop-up menu appears on the bottom of the screen. From this menu, select Prin t.
Step 3: Tap the down arrow at the top-right corner of the screen and choose the Save As PDF option on the drop-down menu.
Step 4: Tap the down arrow underneath Paper Size and choose your document options (size, color, pages) if necessary.
Step 5: Once you’re ready to save your PDF, tap on the blue circle PDF icon on the right side of the screen.
Step 6: Give your file a name by scrolling to the bottom of the following screen and then clicking Save . You also have the opportunity to save your location simply by pressing the three horizontal lines (you’ll see these on the top left of your screen). You can select from a variety of options, including the Downloads folder, somewhere else in your device’s storage, or in your Google Drive.
You’re also able to save PDFs directly from Chrome if you’re using an iOS device; however, the instructions are slightly different.
Step 1: Tap on the Share icon (you can find this in the top-right corner of your screen) and scroll down a bit until you see the Print option. Select it.
Step 2: From the Print menu, use both of your fingers to make a pinching motion that will allow you to zoom in and get a closer view. Doing this will cause the page to automatically transform into a full-screen PDF that you can examine.
Step 3: On the top-right of the screen, select the Share icon again, then pick Save to Files . You can then enter the name you want to call your file, and that’s it – now you have a PDF of your webpage. Keep in mind that you can also implement this process on Firefox for iOS.
It’s a good idea to download the Convert Web to PDF app , which lets you quickly convert to PDF and contains an impressive assortment of editing tools. This app gives you the option of converting only the text or background. You can also define a table of contents or quality levels if you prefer.

Windows 11 is great -- it's worth upgrading to from Windows 10. But as with every version of Windows, it's at its best when you make some tweaks to it. Beyond making Windows 11 look like Windows 10, or customizing the Windows 11 taskbar, there are a few changes anyone can make to Windows 11, and they're changes that everyone should make. In my humble opinion, at least.
So, if you're looking for an upgraded, augmented, and altogether better Windows 11 experience, here are the top five changes you should make to it right now. Disable tracking and personalization If, like me, you aren't a fan of deep personalization or data collection on you in general, then like me, you'll be looking for the least-tracked version of Windows you can find. While Windows 11 does collect more data on you than previous versions, you can disable some of it, and restrict the way the operating system automatically personalizes your experience.

How To Save a Webpage as a PDF
July 15, 2020 by Hung Nguyen
Learn how you can easily save any webpage on the internet as a PDF file within seconds, on any browser. We make PDF easy!
The process to save and share webpages is relatively straightforward in this day and age. You can bookmark them on your favorite web browser for ease of access or share the URL to view the web page.
However, there will be times where you will not have internet access. Furthermore, you might want to save the webpage in a format that allows you to annotate them with ease—in PDF format.
And thus, this guide will outline the many ways that you can convert web pages to PDF via the most popular web browsers out there.
How To Save a Webpage as a PDF in Chrome
Open the page you’d like to keep.
On the top left-hand corner, click File > Print.
Alternatively, press Ctrl + P (Windows) or Cmd + P (Mac)
Under the ‘Destination’ section, click Change... > Save as PDF
Click the ‘Save’ button, pick the name and location for your PDF.

How to save a webpage as a PDF on a Windows computer using the web browser of your choice
- You can save a webpage as a PDF on a Windows computer using any installed web browser, including Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.
- To save any webpage as a PDF, you will need to access the browser's Print menu and select "Save as PDF" or "Microsoft Print to PDF" for your printing destination.
As the saying goes, nothing gets deleted from the internet — but sometimes it does change. You can avoid losing important information or even your work if you save it as a PDF.
Webpages are mutable, so they can change at any time the owner of the website sees fit. That's why it can be beneficial to save them as PDFs.
Saving webpages as PDFs allows you to access pages when you're offline, making it easier to reference them when you don't have an internet connection. Saving a webpage as a PDF also means that you have a permanent version, in case the owner of the site makes significant changes or deletes the site altogether.
On Windows computers, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox can save webpages as PDFs. Each interface looks only slightly different though the mechanism for printing is essentially the same.
Here's how to do it.
How to save a webpage as a PDF on Windows in Google Chrome
1. Open the webpage you want to save.
2. In the top right corner of the screen, click the three dots to bring down the browser menu.
3. From the dropdown menu, choose "Print."
4. The Print settings window will appear. Select the first dropdown menu, labeled "Destination."
5. Change the destination to "Save as PDF."
6. Click Save and wait for the "Save As" window to appear.
7. Name the file, select the file destination, and then click "Save."
How to save a webpage as a PDF on Windows in Microsoft Edge

- Note: Firefox doesn't include a built-in PDF printer, so you may need to use an extension if Microsoft Print isn't appearing.
5. Select "Print."
6. Name the file, select the file destination, and then click "Save."
