2 Simple Ways to Save a Webpage

There are two simple ways by which you can save webpages as a single files. One of them is to save it as a PDF or a .mth/.mhtml file.

Before we proceed, it must be pointed out that while they will not look exactly as the webpage, they do come pretty close. Also, what must be kept in mind is that you’ll have lesser reading options when it comes to latter type of file as opposed to the PDF format.

Now, both these techniques will work in all popular browsers such as Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer.

In particular, Chrome makes this task very simple where you have to hit Ctrl+P with the particular page loaded. Also, click ‘Change’ in the Destination section where you will find the Save as PDF option along with a list of printers.

As for Internet Explorer and Firefox, you can still pull the print menu but the only problem is that you don’t have a Save to PDF option. However, this can solved by getting a print-to-PDF program that will interface with Windows as a print driver. While there are a few options available, the Bullzip PDF Printer is free and quick to download.

Now for the MIME HTML (mhtml) format, Internet Explorer allows you to save it in this format with a simple Ctrl+S where you select .mht from the Save-as-Type pulldown menu.

Since Firefox and Chrome does not support this format, Firefox users can install the Mozilla Archive Format along with Faithful Save and MHT.

For Chrome, type “chrome://flags/” and hit Enter in the browser address field. Look for the option “Save as MHTML”. Now, hit Ctrl+S and select the .mht or mhtml format from the “Save as type” menu.
