Several online tools and free programs help you convert an HTML (hypertext markup language) web page into a PDF (Portable Document Format) document file by making a copy of that page. Below is a listing of these services.

Use print to PDF

Most modern browsers (e.g., Chrome, Edge, and Firefox) now have the feature to print to a PDF instead of a printer. Press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+P to print the page, and then in the print window, change the Destination to Save as PDF or choose Adobe PDF as the printer.

After doing the steps above, when you print, it's saved as a PDF on your computer.
