Create a PDF document from any website

The PDF format is used very frequently. The sample of documents is very complete, and there are also multiple tools for reading and modifying them . Ideally, you should be able to create a document in this format that displays a web page. To achieve this, it is not necessary to install any type of application on the computer or mobile device.

By creating the PDF document of a web page, we can send it via email and share it on social networks, among other possibilities. Below we show what to do, both in Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS.

Create PDF on computers

No matter what web browser we are using, the process is valid for Google Chrome, Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and more. When we find ourselves on a web page, we only have to indicate what we want to do, that is, print the page.

Thus, if we use Google Chrome or Edge, we will have to click on the three points that are in the upper right and follow these steps:

  • In the popup menu that is displayed we must select Print .
  • A window opens in which a copy of the page with all the elements that compose it appears on the left side. On the right we must select Save as PDF in the Destination section . In the Pages section we can leave the default option activated, All , or resort to one of the options shown. We can also indicate if we want the design to be Vertical or Horizontal .
  • When we have made the selections, we just have to click on the Save button at the bottom right of the window.

Create PDF on Android

If we have an Android mobile device that works with the Google Chrome browser, we must do the following:

  • We open the web page and click, in the upper right part, on the three points. From the displayed options we select Share .
  • A popup menu with two lines is displayed at the bottom. In the second we select Print .
  • A new page opens. At the top we select, in the pop-up menu, Save as PDF .
  • An icon with the name PDF is displayed at the top of the new window. We click on it. We will see that a window opens that has a button, with the name Save , at the bottom. Click on it and the page will be stored on the mobile in PDF format.

Create PDF on iPhone and iPad

To create the PDF of a web page on iPhone and iPad we must open it in the Safari browser. Next we do what we indicate below:

  • Click on the Options button at the top and select Share .
  • We select PDF if we want to save the entire page or PDF Reader if we only want to share the text and images.
  • The last step is pressing the Done button .


As we can see, the processes followed in each case are very simple. Anyone, without great knowledge, can carry them out. With this we will easily achieve what we want.

In the event that we save the PDF document on the mobile, we can share it in messaging applications or on social networks. You just have to select it and click on the appropriate option.
