How to Save any Webpage into a PDF in 60 seconds.

Hey all,

I’ve discovered an incredibly easy way to save any webpage into a PDF without any extra apps, add-ons, etc. I’m sure others have figured this out, but will share it with y’all in case you didn’t know. You will need a Mac OS for this saving option. If you have windows, I’m sorry, but I can’t help you. On multiple levels. ;)

Anyway, let’s begin.

#1 Find a page you want to save.

I find this tip especially helpful when I am looking up tutorials and want to save the file to my computer, and don’t want to print it. For instance, check out this cool LED cube tutorial.

Yep, that’s neat, but I won’t be online all the time to reference it… So I’m going to save a pdf so I can read and use it without going through a bucket load of printer ink. Here’s how.

Press CMND+P like you would to print the page. However, see that little pdf pull down on the left corner? Choose that and click “Open PDF in Preview” This will extract the page into a pdf. and then open it in a preview window!

Then, all you have to do is rename the file, save, and viola! A clean PDF of the webpage of your choice.

Hope this was helpful for you all. :)

  1. Great tip, Austin! For Windows users, the ability to print a webpage to a PDF is built-in to Google Chrome. (If you don’t use Chrome, a quick Google search can reveal some options.)

    And Austin…I am a Windows user, but I don’t need or want any help. I do appreciate your thoughtfulness. ;)
