How To: Save web pages as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file

    Saving web pages can be helpful if you want to access the content offline later. For example, you want to read a story from this blog but since they are full and long, you can save the web page in either html or pdf to read the story at your own convenience. Before we continue, please note that the AE Blogs App allows reading stories offline after loading them once.

    Alright, lets talk about saving web pages into PDF by Operating System and Browser.

    Chrome (Windows)

    • Click on the options icon (denoted by three descending dots) at the right hand side corner of the chrome window.
    • Click on Print.
    • Select 'Destination' or preferred printer. This is where you save to PDF format.
    • Click on save.

    Your file should be saved.

    Chrome (Android)

    • Tap on the options icon (denoted by three descending dots) at the right hand side corner of the chrome window.
    • Tap on Share...

    • Tap on 'Print'.
    • Select your preferred printer. Select 'Save to PDF'.
    • Tap on the PDF fab.

    UC Browser (Windows)

    • Click on the options icon (denoted by three descending dashes) at the right hand side corner of the chrome window.
    • Click on Print.
    • Click on Change from the left navigation pane if your default printer is not set to 'Save as PDF' already.
    • Select 'Save as PDF' and accept changes.
    • Finally, Click on Save and your file should be processed.

    Firefox (Android)

    This is the easiest of all.
    • Tap on the options icon (denoted by three descending dots) at the right hand side corner of the chrome window.
    • Tap on 'Page'
    • Tap on 'Save as PDF'
    Many other operating systems and browsers exists but the idea is almost the same. Some browsers however, do not support saving to pdf, you can save web pages to html instead with those browsers.
