    Thanks, I also do that occasionally to get a pdf from a web page.
    However, when using the 'Save as pdf" option in the print menu often gives me a pdf with images moved, truncated or text running into images like on page 3 of the current webpage I posted a link to earlier - top left in the attachment.
    Not too bad in this case- often it's much worse.

    I use the Full Page Screen Capture extension that Nick mentioned for full page images of this forum from time to time but I use it in the Brave browser which allows chrome extensions.

    Do you use the key combination: control+shift+P ?

    What actually happens?
    In Chrome I didn't see anything nor would FAF come up with any file called 'Screen...' with today's date and current time

    No, in Brave and I guessed in Chrome too there is an icon in the tool bar (looks like a camera). I press that. It shows a pacman like animation then I download the image as PDF or other.

    Thanks - now I know what to look for as an icon.

    It seems the extension for Chrome (or Brave) was never actually installed when I installed it from the link that Nick posted a while back.
    So I will have another shot at it.

    When downloading the extension for Chrome, I went to the developer's website to download it there - that just brought me back to the original page that Nick posted and I wasn't sure if any extension was even downloaded.
    Since I had no little camera icon in chrome, I assume not.

    So I went back and looked for another download button and now have the extension.
    Works the way Rod described it.
    Issues I have for my purposes:
    1. If I download the pdf option, the pdf file is broken up into several pages with page breaks at random. In my current example I end up with three pages with page breaks in the wrong place.
    2. If I download the png file, the resolution is only 72 dpi - I was hoping for more. I didn't really expect to end up with my monitor screen resolution since I'm downloading a webpage.
    I have to see if the webpage png image looks any better than the jpg file I get in FireFox.
    Better resolution was the reason I was looking for a png file rather than a jpg file.

    I know it's only $2.- US, but it's more the principle - I like to know what I'm getting when I shell out some cash.

    IIRC, Cocktail (get the specific one for your version of macOS) will let you change the format of the screenshot to JPG / PNG / PDF / maybe others.

    It's just a pref setting, so you can also do it in terminal.

    And for those who may need this - the screenshot key combinations are more in-depth than most people think. You can also use it to take a shot of a specific menu, for example:

    Click the file menu so it expands

    Press Command-Shift-4 (release)

    Press <space>

    Your cursor is now a camera icon. Hover it over the expanded File menu and click - you'll get a screenshot of just that menu. Slick - and useful if you're trying to show someone how to find something in a program menu with visual aids.

    Not sure if this wil help anyone, but when I want to take a screenshot of a web page in Safari that is not all showing in the open window at the time, I simply use Command - (minus) sign and repeat until the entire page is visible in the window. Then I take the screen shot and use Command + (plus) to return to the original size. Works every time for me to get a .png file.

    That would work for a page that maybe is a couple of pages long, but what happens if it's many more than that, once your shrink it all down to fit on a page it might end up being VERY tiny and PNG and others do not scale well if you want to zoom in. For that you need Scalar or Vector graphics format which is not what would be the output.

    Set page size to extra long, and print to pdf.
    I've had this problem, and my solution has been to set the page size to something large, like 11x72 (good for 6 normal pages), and then use the print command to save as PDF.
    Open in Preview, export as png, and you're done.
