Microsoft Edge, the new browser for Windows 10. has already made it to the elite list of impressive browsers. Among the ever-adding list of features, users seldom face an issue or two with Edge as their primary browser. Microsoft Edge (Chromium) accommodates a lot of changes in comparison to its predecessor – Edge HTML. For example, it offers a very easy way to save any web page as PDF file. So, in this post, we will walk you through the process to save a web page as a PDF file in Edge.
Save webpage as PDF file in Edge Browser
While browsing the web or reading an article on a website, we often come across a webpage that we need to save for offline research or sharing with someone for other purposes. Normally, you can just choose copy and paste the link, but if you have the clutter-free image of the page, it even becomes easier to view it offline, mark up, or get a printed copy of it. The most flexible way to get all this done is to readily convert the page into a PDF file. Here’s how to do it!
- Launch Edge browser
- Enable Immersive Reader Mode in Edge
- Select Print options
- Save the file as PDF
For most browsers, like Edge, the Print function happens to be the most effective way to save a webpage to PDF.
Immersive Reader mode in the Edge browser offers a clutter-free and full-screen reading experience to increase the readability of content. So, at first, you’ll need to enable this mode in Edge. For this, launch the Edge browser, go to a website and open a web page.
Immersive Reader mode (book icon with the speaker attached) should become visible to you in the address bar of the web page. Click it to enter the reader mode.
Now, go to ‘Settings and more‘ menu and select ‘Print‘ option.
In the new Print window that opens, hit the drop-down window under ‘Printer‘ heading.
Next, from the list of options displayed, choose ‘Save as PDF‘.
That’s all there is to it!
The Reading mode actually transforms your web page in a beautiful format that the PDF file hardly seems to be drawn out of the web page.
