How to Save a Webpage as a PDF

Are you looking for the quickest instruction on how to save a webpage as a PDF? Then you are on the right page. If you don’t have any issues with Internet access, you can simply bookmark the pages not to miss them and share the URLs to provide others with access.

However, online access doesn’t solve all the problems. What if you need to open pages offline or annotate them for any purpose? That’s where PDF format comes in extremely handy! Read our guide to learn how to save HTML as PDFs in a few clicks in your particular web browser.

Using a laptop


Getting started with the Chrome browser
  1. Open the needed web page.
  2. Press Ctrl+P on Windows or Cmd+P on Mac to open the Print menu.
  3. Click ‘Change’ under the ‘Destination’ section and select ‘Save as PDF.’
  4. Select the total number of pages, the number of pages on a sheet, enable/disable background graphics, set margins, customize scale, choose the layout, etc.
  5. Click ‘Save’ to convert the webpage to PDF, name the file, and select the needed destination folder on your computer.

Microsoft Edge

Getting started with the Microsoft Edge browser

Getting started with the Safari browser

You still can install Safari on a Windows computer in 2021, but the browser isn’t officially supported by Apple anymore, so we recommend using it only on Mac computers to receive the latest security updates and benefit from synchronization features.

  1. Press Cmd+P when on the needed web page.
  2. Click the arrow-shaped drop-down button in the left bottom corner (next to the question mark button).
  3. Select ‘Save as PDF’ and locate the file on your Mac.
  4. Click ‘Show Details’ to access the entire list of settings. Here you can select the paper format, page number, orientation, scale, layout, disable/enable background graphics, and leave/remove headers and footers.
  5. Click ‘Save’ to download a webpage.


Getting started with the Opera browser

Opera is a Chromium-based browser, and it offers the same advanced set of PDF-saving options as Chrome. Here’s how to use them:

  1. Press Ctrl+P on Windows or Cmd+P on Mac when you are on the needed page.
  2. Usually, the ‘Save as PDF’ option is selected automatically. Select it manually next to the ‘Destination’ section if it’s not.
  3. Before saving, you can also choose the number of pages, page layout, paper size, the number of pages per sheet, custom margins, page scale, headers and footers views, and enable/disable background graphic elements.
  4. Click ‘Save’ and select the destination folder.
