Saving web pages as PDFs (opens in new tab) will soon be even easier in Microsoft Edge (opens in new tab) as the company is working on adding a new option to the settings menu of its browser.

As reported (opens in new tab) by MSpoweruser and first spotted by Leo Verla (opens in new tab), a new option is coming to Edge's settings menu that will enable users to add “Save as PDF” to the browser's Context Menu.

While the content of webpages can change frequently, saving them as PDF files can be a great way to keep a copy of an article or blog post for research purposes.

Save as PDF

In a recent post (opens in new tab) on Reddit, Leo Verla showed some screenshots of Edge's new “Save as PDF” feature and explained that Microsoft has also brought back the “mini-menu and the built-in dictionary” to insider versions of its browser.

Being able to right click to save web pages as a PDF will likely save Edge users a lot of time as they previously had to use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + P to bring up the browser's print menu and choose “Microsoft Print to PDF” to do so.

While this new feature is currently available in Edge Canary Build 94.0.974.0 as part of a controlled feature rollout, it should arrive in stable versions of Microsoft's browser in the next several months.
