Save a Web Page as a PDF with Just One Click

Typically, when you want to save a Web page for future reference, you bookmark it. But what happens if that site gets taken down? Or the content of the page gets changed? Or you want to actually preserve that page in a format that doesn’t require a Web browser?

All good questions. The simplest answer: Save important Web pages as PDFs. That gives you a much more permanent solution for storing, sharing, printing, and otherwise manipulating important Web content.

There are a number of ways to do this, but I’m partial to Web2PDF. There are actually three ways to use this handy free service: Copy and paste the URL of the page you want to convert; e-mail the URL of the page you want to convert to submit@web2pdfconvert.com; or install the Web2PDF bookmarklet.

I like this last option the best, as it’s literally a one-click solution. (Well, sort of. Read on.)

To add it to your browser (any browser — it works with all of them), click the PDF Button option on the Web2PDF site, then click the first of the two links you see: …browser and convert web pages to PDF files with one click using…

Next, click Bookmarklet, then drag the actual bookmarklet to your browser’s favorites bar.

Now, whenever you’re viewing a Web page you want to convert to PDF, click that bookmarklet (which is labeled Save page as PDF). That’ll pop open a new tab, and in a few seconds you’ll see “PDF successfully created” followed by three options: Download PDF, Save to Google Docs, and Store and Share PDF (which takes you to free file-sharing service FileJumbo).

So, technically, there’s a second click involved, but ultimately it doesn’t get much easier than that.

 

By the way, in Chrome, simply go to Print, and there’s a built-in option ‘Save as PDF’.

  1. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!
