Would you like to save your favorite PR article as a file on your computer? If you said, 'Yes', keep reading.

I have used two different programs to save PR articles as a PDF file. Both of them are FREE to download from the Intern et and easy to use. What is a PDF file? It is a file that can be opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is already installed on most computers.

==================
1. CutePDF Writer - As easy as using your printer. Saves the entire page you are viewing. Download and install the program. It will show up as a printer on your computer.

Go to the PR article you want to save. Just like using your printer, click File -Print. Select the CutePDF printer from your list of printers. Instead of printing, a box opens up and asks where you want to save the file. Give it a name and Save it to a folder on your computer.

==================
2. FireShot - Select an area or the entire page to Save, Email, or Copy and Paste. Download and install the program. It will show up as a Tool icon on your Internet Browser.

Go to the PR article you want to save. Click on the FireShot icon and a list drops down to show all your options. Intermediate skilled computer users should find the options easy to understand. One of the Tool Options is to 'View a Demo'.
==============

Once saved, the PDF file is like any other file that you click to open. You can read it or print it. The Adobe Acrobat Reader is a reader and does not allow you to edit or change the text.

Thanks for the links!

I would like to point out that, on more recent laptops, when you call the printer, there is an option to save as PDF.

I use a mac laptop and it is on the bottom left-hand corner of the printer window. Saves everything, including the comments, which may or may not be a good thing. I use this feature a lot with tutorials online.

Next to the printer icon is the word Page. If you click on this there are several options and one is Save.
