July 31, 20232.1K views

In-browser extensions and utilities abound in the Chrome internet browser online. Some of these options are certainly familiar to you, but you may not be aware of others at your fingertips. As you can see, not only can you use Chrome's extensions to make your life easier, but you can also perform things like converting a webpage to a PDF file right from the browser.

What Exactly Is a PDF Document?

Known as a "Portable Document Format," the PDF file format was developed by Adobe in the 1990s and is commonly used to deliver read-only documents to the public. This sort of file differs from a Word or Pages file in that other users cannot alter the layout of a page or edit information unless they have been granted permission. So, it is a great technique to maintain a page's layout, information, and text. There are two main reasons why this kind of file was created:

  • People can open a document on any system without the original app or application that authored the document being installed on their system (All you need is a PDF reader)

  • The layout and appearance of a PDF file should be consistent regardless of where it is opened.

How to Convert a Webpage to PDF in Chrome

  • Go to the page you wish to save.
  • Take a look at the Chrome menu.
  • To print, select the "Print" option.
  • The Print Destination can be changed.
  • Choose the option to save it as a PDF.
  • Save the page as a PDF file.

To convert a webpage to PDF in Chrome, go to the Print Settings and modify how the file is saved on your computer. You can save the file as a PDF by selecting the option.

1.Visit the Website

Go to the URL that you wish to save in Chrome first. Keep in mind that when you save a webpage as a PDF in Chrome, you save everything that can be seen on the page. However, the formatting of the webpage content will often be altered due to the PDF conversion.

2.Open the Chrome menu.

Once you're on the page you want to save as a PDF, click on the Chrome menu button. This can be seen in the window's upper-right corner.

3.Select "Print" from the menu.


You will see a drop-down menu when you click on the Chrome menu. To print a document, locate the "Print" option on the left side of the screen and select it.

4.Changing the Print Destination

A huge pop-up box is displayed here, allowing you to select from various print options. To alter the print style, select "Change" from the drop-down menu that appears.

5.Select the "Save as PDF" option.


When the button is pressed, a pop-up selection box will appear. There are a variety of print destinations listed here. Make sure you're in the "Print Destinations" menu and select the "Save as PDF" option.

6.Step 6: Save the Page

Returning to the print box, click "Save" to create a PDF. The Chrome Browser will immediately begin the process of saving for free. You will be asked to save the file to a location on your computer. Go ahead and rename the file as you choose and save it. The name of the PDF file will be the same as the webpage's title if the option is not selected. With the Chrome Browser, you can now access any webpage and convert it to a PDF free for later use. This makes it easier to read at a time that is more convenient for you.

Why Convert a Webpage to PDF?

A lot of the time, we come across a website with a lot of images and content that we'd like to read but have to reserve for later. You may want to look at charts, look at other material in greater detail, or save that particular piece of information for the future instead of searching online. Whatever the cause, saving the page as a PDF is the best solution. The Google Chrome browser makes it simple to convert a webpage to a PDF file, which can be printed and read on nearly any device for free when you're not online. Using a PDF viewer on a WordPress site is convenient, but it still requires you to read the material right there and now. When you save a webpage as a PDF file, you can save it to any folder and examine it at your convenience.
