The net is changing constantly, and so are websites on it. Now, you may want to find yourself looking for a permanent copy of a site – one that won’t change even if the live site updates. Saving such a snapshot as a PDF using Windows 10 is quite easy!
Be aware though, that your PDF won’t reflect any changes, and links and information in it may become outdated and no longer apply. If you want to save a site as a PDF anyway, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the webpage
Open the exact site you want to save. That means if you want an About Us page, you need to be looking at that exact page, not, say, the homepage.
- Press Ctrl + P
Doing so will open up a small dialogue window labelled Print. You won’t be printing your page to paper though, but rather to a PDF. In the Destination dropdown, select Microsoft Print to PDF, then click Print.
You’ll be prompted to select a location for your new file (unless you have a default set already), and your file will save there automatically.
- Inspect your PDF
When the download is complete, you can see what your file looks like – navigate to the folder you saved it in and double-click to open the file in question.
