If you’re using Safari on a Mac and you’d like to save a local copy of a web page for later viewing, it’s easy to export the page to a PDF file. Here’s how to do it.

First, open Safari and navigate to the web page you’d like to save as a PDF file.

Navigate to the page you want to save as a PDF in Safari on Mac

In the menu bar at the top of the screen, select File > Export as PDF.

A Save window will pop up. Type a file name (or leave the default name) and choose the location where you’d like to save the PDF file. When you’re ready, click “Save.”
