There are many reasons to save a webpage to PDF such as to gather and use information from a table of data or to read a page later when you will be offline. PDF is a great format as it can be read on pretty much any device.
Saving a webpage as a PDF couldn't be easier! We'll be showing you how to save a webpage as a PDF in Google Chrome, however it's almost exactly the same process in most web browsers.
Go to the URL of the webpage you'd like to save as PDF.
Right click anywhere on the page and select 'Print...', or use shortcut
Once the print dialog box shows up, change the 'Destination' to be 'Save as PDF'. In other browsers the wording may differ slightly, just be sure to choose the option that ends with 'to PDF' or 'as PDF'. Do not use the 'Microsoft Print to PDF' option as this will save your PDF as an image rather than a searchable PDF.
Click 'Save' then a 'Save As' dialog box will appear. Move to the folder you'd like to save it in then click 'Save'. You can rename it here if you'd like to.
The webpage has now been saved as a PDF document. If you are looking to extract tabular data from the PDF, try PDFTables for converting PDF to Excel or CSV.
If you would like to convert multiple PDFs to Excel, see our blog post on converting multiple PDFs with our API.
