 This tutorial is only intended for users running the Google Chrome browser on Chrome OS, LinuxMac OS X, ​Mac OS Sierra or Windows operating systems.

There may come a time where you would like to save a copy of a particular Web page to your hard drive. This could be for a number of reasons, ranging from offline viewing to perusing and possibly editing the source code. No matter what your motive, the good news is that Google Chrome allows you to save pages in just a few easy steps.

Depending on how the page is designed, this may include all of the corresponding code as well as its image files. First, open your Google Chrome browser.

Click on Chrome's main menu button, located in the upper right-hand corner of your browser window and represented by three vertically-aligned dots. When the drop-down menu appears, hover your mouse cursor over the More tools option. A sub-menu should now appear. Click on Save page as. You can also use the following keyboard shortcut in place of this menu item: Chrome OS, Windows (CTRL+S); Mac OS X, Mac OS Sierra (COMMAND+S).

At this point a standard save file dialog should be displayed, varying depending on your operating system and overlaying your browser window. Select the exact location on your hard drive or removable disk where you would like to save the current Web page and click the appropriate button to complete the process. The files should now be saved to the location specified.
