How to Save a Webpage as a PDF and How to take a Screenshot (Screen-capture)

What we discussed in class:

A. How to save a webpage as a pdf document
B. What is a “screenshot” or “screen capture” and how do we do it

We’ve been working for a while with the Windows program in class, organizing files and folders, saving images, attaching those images inside of email messages, and even copy & pasting images into emails.

More about those lessons can be found by clicking on any one of the Class Session links over on the right hand side of this page ->

A. How to save a webpage as a pdf document

In many of our classes together we’ve used the “Right-mouse” click. That feature serves many uses on a variety of platforms. You can use the right-mouse click anywhere. You can use this feature inside of the Windows program, you can use it on web pages, you can even right-mouse click on your own desktop to open up more options that are available to you on your own computer.

Using the right-mouse click feature in different programs gives you different options. The more you use the right-mouse click, the more comfortable you’ll find yourself in using your computer.

Don’t be nervous about using the right-mouse click. If you’ve selected an option from the menu that drops down, after you’ve clicked, all you have to do is click on that same option again to reverse the step.

In the video below I show you how to use the right-mouse click on a webpage to save it as a PDF, inside of Google Chrome.


B. What is a “screenshot” or “screen capture” and how do we do it

Wikipedia definition:

A screenshot, screen capture (or screen-cap), screen dump, screengrab is an image taken by the computer user to record the visible items displayed on the monitor.

There are many different tools you can use to capture a screenshot. For simplicity’s sake, I’m just going to show you one.

In the video below, I walk you through using your computer’s own “print screen” function to capture a screenshot, and then use Microsoft’s “Paint” to view the screenshot and then save it as an image.
