Use the Pages option to save certain pages (for example, only the first page like in my example or a range of pages). If you would like to change the orientation of the PDF file from portrait (the default) to landscape, click on the Layout option.

When you are done with your options, click on the Save button at the bottom of the page. Refer to below image:

The Save As dialog box will open. Enter the path where you want to save your PDF file and rename the file, if necessary. Click Save to save your file. See following image:

Your web page(s) will be saved as a PDF file in the location you have chosen.

It’s possible to save documents to PDF files other than Chrome. Whether its a Window 10 or a Mac computer, print-to-PDF functionally will be similar.
