Modern web browsers can handle print requests efficiently, so you don’t need a dedicated printing application to print a web page. Whether you want a hard copy of a webpage or save it as PDF using a virtual printer like Microsoft Print to PDF, you can simply use the print function provided by your web browser.

- On your keyboard, press the Ctrl and P keys simultaneously. It will open a new print window within the browser.
