How do I "save" a webpage for use when offline?

Evening All,

Is it possible to save a webpage so that you can look at it when offline? I want to save certain pages from French Campsite websites, in particular the 'home' pages which often have a piccy of the site and the address. This info would be useful to look at when unable to get internet access.

There may be more technical ways but i just 'select' what i want to save, then copy it onto a textedit page, then save to the desktop or a folder. Very simple.

Hi Lala,

Can you save images and text that way? I have fiddled around trying to 'copy and paste' but I only seem to be able to save either the image OR the text but not both.

Right click, then save as, options include full web page.

Works on Firefox and Chrome.

I either do a screen shot or save the website to the 'Reading List' facility on my MacBook and iPad. I don't know if or how you could do this on a PC but someone else might know.

If I want to save a picture I right click on it and use "save picture as" and then save into a folder, then copy and paste onto a Word document with the text I want too and the maps. If I have problems saving maps I use the control-print screen and then paste it into Paint, select and crop to what I want and then save that as a jpg for ling term or simply copy and paste into the Word document.

It works but is a bit of a hassle - Evernote was recommended to me but I did not find it useful as it seemed to interfere with other things.....

Hi Caulkhead


There is a button in all the browsers that allows you to click it and it will save the page you are viewing.

in Internet Explorer make sure that the command bar is showing then click on "page" > "save as" > give the file suitable name and save it to somewhere on your PC.

in Chrome it is easier just do a right click anywhere on the page that you are viewing and then choose "save as"


BUT one of the best ways for your purposes ( keeping info ready for when you need it) may be to use one of the online services that converts a web page and all of its detail into a PDF file.... the file will be small and easily stored ...ready to be read whenever you wish. You will need to try it out on the websites you wish to keep a copy of as there are some restrictions on some sites , ie. MHF does not allow some links to be copied , but normal websites such as campsite websites do not usually have these restrictions so they should save as a perfect PDF file.

Here is a link to a website that offers this service for free:

http://www.web2pdfconvert.com/

and under this post I will add a pdf of one of the entries in our database ( Le Touquet Basse Nautique Nord (62) Campsite Review) created by the above service for you to check out....

When confronted by a problem, you can solve it easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger have handled this?"

Thanks for info.

But I just tried to download the .pdf file at the bottom of your post and received "This file no longer exists'

I am using Firefox

Hi Geoff

That's strange ...it might be because I changed the first one I attached ....but I used the same file name ...retry this one
