We all travel to remote places or bad wifi areas and sometimes need to read something that isn’t available offline. Therefore, saving webpages you want to read later on as PDFs is one handy solution. And if you are using the Chrome browser on your Mac, it’s super easy to do.
Hi, I’m Andreas. Over the years, I’ve found this feature handy when saving web pages to read later or while traveling without an internet connection.
In this article, I’ll show you how to do that on Mac Chrome, step by step.
2 Ways to Save a Webpage as PDF on Mac Chrome
Method 1: Use a Keyboard Shortcut
Saving a webpage as PDF is an easy process that will take less than a minute of your time. In return, you can download the web page to view it offline or print it.
Step 1: Launch Google Chrome and open a webpage.
Step 2: Press “Command” + “P.” A pop up will appear with print options.
Step 3: In the “Destination” field, select PDF.
Step 4: Under “Pages,” select “All.” Selecting this option will allow you to export all pages from the website as PDFs.
Step 5: Choose “Save.”
Now you have a PDF document of the website you want. But there is another way to do it.
Method 2: Use Chrome’s Print Feature
This method is very similar to the first one. Instead of using “Command” + “P,” you will use the three vertical dots in Chrome. Let me show you how.
Launch Chrome and open a webpage. Click on the three vertical dots in the top-right corner and choose “Print.”
Then follow the steps 3-5 from the previous method.
As you can see, the process is identical, but instead of using the keyboard shortcut for printing a website, you do it via Chrome Settings.
That concludes this short guide on how to save a webpage as a PDF on Mac Chrome. We do this to print the website or view it offline. Now that you’ve learned this, you can make a copy of any website on your desktop without needing to open it in Chrome.
One way to save a document as PDF is with the Chrome browser. But you don’t need an internet connection. What’s your favourite way to save webpages? Let me know in the comments below.
