These instructions apply to Windows 10 machines and Macs with only slight differences in graphics.

First, open Edge and visit the web page you want to save as PDF. Locate the ellipsis button (three dots aligned horizontally) in the upper right corner of the window and click it.

A menu will drop down. Select “Print”.

A print window appears that contains a preview of the appearance of the page when you save it as a PDF file. In the drop-down menu entitled “Printer”, select “Save as PDF”.

If you want to change the orientation of the PDF file from portrait (vertical) to landscape (horizontal), click on “Landscape” in the “Layout” section.

And, if you preview the web page and see that you only need to save a few pages instead of the whole document, click on the text input box and type in the page number (or a range of page numbers ) that you want to save.

When you’re ready, click the “Save” button at the bottom of the print window.

A “Save As” dialog box appears. Navigate to the path on your computer where you want to save the PDF file. If necessary, you can also rename the file here. After that click on “Save”.

When the window closes, the website will be saved as a PDF file in the location you have chosen. To recheck, go to your backup location, open the PDF file and see if it looks like what you expect. Otherwise, you can change the settings in the Print window and try again.

If you want to save other documents as PDF files for future reference, you can save a file in PDF format in any application on Windows 10 or on a Mac. On both operating systems, the process is based on the built-in PDF printing functionality, which is very convenient indeed.
