Easy To Save Web Pages as PDFs Without Using Any Extensions Or Addon

Today, there are more than enough PDF writing software and many online file conversion services around that can assist you in saving web pages and other documents as PDF files, the truth is that you don’t require any of them provided you have Google Chrome browser on your PC.

How Do i save my documents as PDF with out software?

First of all, all you need is a Google Chrome browser, Now open any webpage inside Google Chrome browser, press Ctrl+P (or Cmd+P assuming that you are on a Mac) to open the Print dialog then change the printer destination to “Save as PDF.” Hit the Print button and the present page you are viewing will immediately download as a PDF file. Isnt that very simple?

You do not need to install an external application or extension on your computer for this to work because Google Chrome itself functions as the PDF writer.

This is very helpful for downloading PDF files of online elements that include transactions or session information – similar to the checkout page on a shopping online content, Account information – because you wont want such details to be saved on any online file conversion service.

And it doesnt just stop at that… You could probably additionally utilize Chrome’s PDF engine to change over your local picture files, text files and any local HTML webpage to PDFs – in the event that you open the file in Chrome, then it would be able to change over the document to PDF.

Meanwhile, like i said above there are various softwares that can also help in converting files ( Microsoft Word Documents) in PDF, but that wont be written here.. But in another post i will be making soon.
